District 2

Larry Cowling upended Carolyn Coleman in a razor close runoff for the Democratic slot. He faces Republican Hoyt Johnson

District 3

Democrat Bubba Powers faces Evelyn Bradford down in Hempstead County

District 6

El Dorado has one of the more interesting match ups. John Lowery is the former chairman of the Republican County Committee, but won a state-rep seat as a Democrat. He was latter defeated in an attempt to run for state senate. His Republican opponent is a black Republican named Alphonso Nation. The black vote that makes up about 40% of the vote in El Dorado has invariably voted Democrat. The white population is split evenly.

District 18

Democrat Toni Bradford faces Republican Justice Ted Harden in this rural south central district.

District 19 Bobby Joe Pierce (Democrat) vs David Workman ®

It looks good for us down here in House District 2 , Hoyt was an extremly popular mayor, that can bring people across party lines. Larry Cowling really has no experience never been elected to anything, Cowling raised alot of money in the primary , but reports spending most of it to beat coleman, over $15,000, serious money for district 2, I think we have an excellant shot at picking up this seat , which has never been held by a Republican, if you guys get a chance check out Hoyts website

34 out of 100 races are contested. not good, but better than I thought it would be. in a few races though, the opposition is not serious.

By "you guys" I presume you mean the people of Arkansas, since that number was not a reference to the number of seats where Republicans are challenging Democrats but rather a count of the number of seats that are even contested by anyone including Democrats challenging a GOP incumbent.

It includes situations like Republican Representative Roy Ragland drawing opposition from a Democrat and Republican Mark Martin drawing an Independent opponent in "Triple J" Jimmy Johnson Jr.

I think the GOP has a good chance in 90, 95, 98, 75, 76, 67, 59, 28, 18, and 2. Six is interesting and there is no telling who will win. If a GOP incumbent is in danger anywhere it would be 87 or 90.
