Those vying to replace 2nd District Congressman Vic Snyder took to the podium to discuss their candidacies at the Arkansas Farm Bureau annual convention.

Cap-and-trade, health care reform, and opening export markets seemed to dominate the conversation, according to this report from Rob Moritz with our content partner, the Arkansas News Bureau.

There were several developments on the GOP front in the 2nd District race in the last 24 hours. Candidate Scott Wallace received the endorsement of popular former 3rd District Congressman John Paul Hammerschmidt. Wallace also became a grandfather to a new baby grandson.

His primary opponent, Tim Griffin was visited by Republican Minority Whip U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia. Cantor headlined a fundraiser for Griffin and also stumped for him on KARN Newsradio 920. Jason Tolbert with our content partner, The Tolbert Report, files this post.
