It is a seat held by Dems for years. Pryor is in his 2nd term.
Dems held 3 of the 4 House seats and both Senate seats. Rep. Boozman held the only Republican seat from 2001 to 2011. He ran against Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D) in 2012 and defeated her. In 2010, the Republicans turned 2 other House seats to Republicans, leaving only 1 House seat under the Dems. In 2012, that seat changed to R.
If Cotton does win against Pryor, then 3 House and both Senate seats would have gone from D to R since 2010, giving the state 4 R’s in the House and 2 R’s in the Senate.
The House seat Boozman vacated remained under the R column in the 2012 election.
It was good to see the back of that hag, Blanche Lincoln. If only we can bury Mary Landreau in a similar victory.
I think AR can now be forgiven for the Clintonian travesty.
