LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) -

Two members of the state's congressional delegation spent Monday answering a variety of questions on federal and state issues. 

According to a report from Little Rock television station KARK, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. and Rep. French Hill, R-Little Rock, hosted a town hall meeting Monday in Little Rock. 

Several issues were discussed including Social Security, foreign policy, healthcare, the tax returns of President Donald Trump and local issues involving a series of executions set for this month. 

"What have you done as an elected official to convince our governor to cancel the executions," a woman told Cotton and Hill. 

However, the meeting drew the ire of a man. 

"I think that's a real example of how divided we are," Gary Drawbaugh said.
