Love and West both spoke on the health care law and other issues at a fundraising luncheon and then at a town hall meeting held on the community college campus.

At one point during the early afternoon town hall meeting attended by more than 50 people, West said he would challenge the contention that the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land after being upheld by the Supreme Court.

Before he could make his argument about the issues he had with the status of the law, Love interrupted. "Slavery was the law of the land, too, wasn't it?" she asked. "That doesn't mean it shouldn't be changed."

Dana Goff, a former western regional director of the Young Republican National Federation from Murray who attended the town hall meeting, said she is a fan of both Love and West, but no longer supports the tea party.

"The tea party is so far right, they don't want to compromise with anybody," Goff said. "I'm looking for someone who can actually get things done."
