The following is a statement from Mike McNeill, owner of Magnolia Reporter LLC, and publisher and editor of magnoliareporter.com:
On the afternoon of Thursday, May 12, magnoliareporter.com received a message from the campaign of Arkansas State Senate candidate Steve Crowell of Magnolia. The message expressed concern about a mail piece paid for by a group called Truth in Politics 2 IEC on behalf of State Sen. Charles Beckham of McNeil.
Beckham and Crowell are both Republicans, and the only candidates for the District 3 seat in the Arkansas Senate. The Tuesday, May 24 primary will determine which man will serve a four-year term in the State Senate.
