Arkansas: Democratic Nominees Emerge in 1st and 4th Districts

Local prosecuting attorney Scott Ellington and state Sen. Gene Jeffress won the Democratic primary runoffs in the Razorback State’s 1st and 4th districts, respectively.

Ellington beat state Rep. Clark Hall, who was backed by the Washington, D.C., and Little Rock Democratic establishments. He’ll face Rep. Rick Crawford (R), who is favored to hold his seat, in November.

Jeffress beat attorney Q. Byrum Hurst. Jeffress faces incredibly steep odds in his campaign against conservative darling Tom Cotton, the Republican nominee who is seen as an extremely strong candidate.
