CENTRAL TEXAS REPUBLICAN ASSEMBLY AND AUSTIN RHETORIC CLUB INVITE REPUBLICAN SENTATE CANDIDATES TO DEBATE
The Central Texas Republican Assembly (CTRA) and Austin Rhetoric Club (ARC) have invited Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst, Republican primary candidates for the United States Senate seat being vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison to participate in a debate.
The date of the debate is subject to confirmation by the candidates, but will be before the July 31, 2012 primary runoff election. The public will be invited to attend.
“The CTRA is proud to work with the fine young members of the ARC to give voters a forum to be more informed about the candidates in this very important race,” said president Daniel McDonald. “Forums like this are important in helping voters decide who will best represent the Republican Party’s platform and conservative values.”
The Austin Rhetoric Club (ARC) is a speech and debate club that promotes leadership among Austin-area youth. The ARC includes over 300 4th – 12th grade home schooled student members who participate in local and state meetings, conferences and tournaments.
The Central Texas Republican Assembly (CTRA) is a grassroots volunteer organization that works to elect mainstream conservatives to public office. The CTRA is a member chapter of the Texas Republican Assembly and the National Federation of Republican Assemblies. The CTRA was founded in 2001 and is active in Travis, Hays, and Bastrop counties.
