COOS BAY, Ore. -- People woke up early Saturday to talk politics at a congressional candidate roundtable hosted by the Coos County Republican Women's Club at Coos Art Museum.
Four Republican candidates running for a seat in the US Senate were there: Faye Stewart, Mark Callahan, Daniel Laschober and Sam Carpenter.
Jo Rae Perkins was also there. Perkins is running for Congressional District Four.
The candidates answered questions in small groups and met with people individually.
"Individuals are the ones that matter," said roundtable attendee Ron Wiggins. "Every person in this county is the important one. It's not who's commissioner or who's mayor, but it's the individuals that make or break a place."
The second roundtable event is set for March 19 at the Pony Village Mall.
