Immigration, healthcare, and education dominated a forum in Hutchinson Tuesday night as seven candidates fight for the First District Congressional seat currently held by Rep. Jerry Moran.
All seven Republican candidates were in agreement on topics discussed in the forum hosted by The Hutchinson News, the Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce, and Young Professionals of Reno County.
Candidates Jim Barnett, Sue Boldra, Tim Huelskamp, Marck Cobb, Tracey Mann, Monte Shadwick, and Rob Wasinger say the federal government has grown too big. They say spending and decision making should be left to local governments.
