LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The four announced candidates for next year's governor's race are scheduled to participate in events this week at the Delta Caucus Conference in Little Rock.

The conference begins Thursday at the Clinton Presidential Center. Republican gubernatorial candidates Asa Hutchinson and Curtis Coleman are scheduled to speak at a forum at 5 p.m. Thursday. The debate will be followed by a speech from U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton.

On Friday, Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Bill Halter is scheduled to speak at 11:30 a.m., while rival Mike Ross is set to address the conference afterward.

Other speakers Friday include Gov. Mike Beebe, Sens. John Boozman and Mark Pryor and U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford.

The caucus says it will announce funding of more than $200 million for investments in the region's economic development.
