U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway made a campaign stop in Mineral Wells Thursday to speak with an intimate group of local residents at Holiday Hills Country Club.

A Republican, Conaway recently became Palo Pinto County’s representative following Congressional redistricting that placed the county in District 11.

He began the event with a few comments before speaking individually with attendees.

Conaway expressed his pleasure with Mitt Romney’s performance in the first presidential debate Wednesday night, saying the nominee “really rocked [Obama] hard.”

He briefly explained a few of the major areas of focus for the next legislative session, including the repeal of tax cuts set to go into effect in January.
