The Conservative Women’s Coalition has scheduled a “Meet the Candidate Night,” which is set to include Republicans running for the Illinois General Assembly.

Scheduled to speak are Ben Stratemeyer, candidate for the 54th State Senate District; Hal Patton, candidate for 56th State Senate District; Mike Babcock, candidate for 111th State House District; and Wendy Erhart and Dwight Kay, the two Republicans vying to be the nominee in the 112th State House District.

Organizers said they plan to give each candidate time to speak and have them participate in a question-and-answer session. Free refreshments will be served and dinner is set to be available for purchase.

To attend, the forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at the IHOP at 4233 S. Illinois 159 in Glen Carbon.

The primary election is scheduled for March 20, with winners going onto the November general election.
