2 properties of candidate Hurst under foreclosure | Politics
HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Court records show that two Hot Springs properties owned by 4th District congressional candidate Q. Byrum Hurst Jr. are in foreclosure.
The Sentinel-Record reported (http://is.gd/GuevPP ) Friday that Charters Bank filed papers in Garland County Circuit Court last month claiming Hurst defaulted on a $100,000 mortgage on the property in Hot Springs.
Hurst told the newspaper that he has not been served the lawsuit but says he has discussed the debt with the bank. Hurst says he's not behind on his payments and that will come out once he is served with the foreclosure papers.
Hurst is running as a Democrat for the seat that is coming open with incumbent Rep. Mike Ross not seeking re-election.
