US state flag of Arkansas waving in the wind

These are official results from the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office with 99% of precincts reporting. Voter turnout was 49% with over 874,000 votes cast. There were little surprises in Arkansas with just four incumbents being defeated, all in the State House of Representatives.

Incumbent State Rep. Michael John Gray, who is the state Democrat party chair, was defeated by Republican Craig Christiansen by just under 100 votes, or about 1 point. Moderate Republican Charlie Collins was defeated by 10 points by Democrat Denise Garner in East Fayetteville. Democrat State Rep. Scott Baltz was narrowly defeated by about 100 votes, or 1.5 points, by Republican Marsh Davis. In perhaps the most shocking result in the State House, Republican State Rep. Jeff Williams of Springdale was defeated by just 30 votes by Democrat Megan Godfrey with very low turnout in that district.

With these results, Arkansas will look exactly the same with the Republican Party holding all constitutional offices, all Congressional seats, and the same supermajorities in the State House and State Senate.
