Arkansas GOP spokeswoman Katherine Vasilos and Democratic Party of Arkansas spokeswoman Candace Martin appeared on Talk Business Sunday night to discuss a number of political differences.

The two party leaders discussed the recent Chick-Fil-A controversy and its potential political ramifications as well as other issues regarding party platforms and tax policies.

Both guests saw the statements made by supporters and protestors of Chick-Fil-A as an exercise in American free speech.

Martin said she didn’t think there would be a political ramifications from Arkansas voters over the same-sex marriage controversy despite big turnouts seen last Wednesday at the fast food chain.

“It seems like an older issue here in Arkansas since it has been adopted in our state’s constitution.” Martin said in reference to a state constitutional amendment passed in 200 .

Vasilos said the brouhaha definitely reflected conservative voters’ interest in electing Republican candidates starting with the top of the ticket.

“We have President Obama, who recently came out in support of same-sex marriage, again deeply demonstrating how out of touch he is with voters in Arkansas.”
