The Benton Courier reported, "Benton attorney Ray Baxter, chairman of the Saline County Democratic Party, said today nothing that has happened over the past week jeopardizes Harmon's position as his party's nominee for prosecutor." The Courier goes on to quote Baxter. "'Nothing that is anything other than his busines' has occurred, Baxter said. 'It's certainly none of mine and none of the party's.'"
