A runoff would be June 8. Turnout's usually lower. I don't who this would help more, Halter or Lincoln.

Paleo, Doesn't matter in the end. Get used to saying Senator Boozman.

Even if that's true, whether Halter can knock off Lincoln does matter to progressive Democrats.

I am not saying that this isn't going to be very hard for the Dems to defend. Probably 2nd highest chance of going Republican after ND. Halter is only 9% away from Boozman. It's not that hard to see it tightening once the general election begins. I think Halter is the better choice but we shall see what the Arkansas democrats think. Does AR have open primaries?

The Republicans seem pretty energized in AR, they didnt even run anyone against Mark Pryor in 2008.
