Crittenden County Republican Party will host a congressional candidate town hall meeting tonight at Fohs Hall. First Congressional District hopefuls James Comer, Mike Pape and Jason Batts have indicated they will attend the party’s primer for the May 17 Republican primary in Kentucky.
Guests to the 7 p.m. event will be able to pose questions to three of the four Republicans vying to fill the vacancy that will be left when 11-term U.S. Rep Ed Whitfield, R-Hopkinsville, retires at the end of his current term. There is no cost to attend the town hall.
None of the three GOP candidates for U.S. Senate will be attending the political event.
