Election Day Coverage: LIVE THREAD

UPDATE 8:30 PM***It looks bad, with the top two GOP spots with 36%, but NO VOTES HAVE YET COME IN FROM THE 3RD DISTRICT. All votes reported as of 8:30 are from the other congressional districts.

Please post results on this thread as you hear them come in.

The Secretary of State will post results at www.arelections.org but we have been warned that news organizations will beat them to the punch in most cases.

BEST SITES I HAVE SEEN, WITH MORE DIRECT LINKS, no particular order.

4th district- 43 precincts reporting, 1st 9, 2nd 3, 3rd ZERO.

The numbers you see at 8:45 represent mostly how the Republicans are doing in the 4th Congressional district, not how this will end statewide.

Yes, the 3rd district is finally being heard from in a small way. Stand by for shifting election results.

My calculation was that the 3rd would be responsible for about 28.8% of the vote, while the 4th would be 22%.

You are welcome.

Even the boxes that have reported in the 3rd district must be Democratic-leaning boxes. I saw where Anderson is leading Boozeman 51-49% for Congress. You can't tell me that is going to hold up.

House District 87 is starting off as a nail-biter. Rep. Mark Martin over the more conservative Independent Jimmie Johnson by 8 votes. 51% to 49%. We will see how this one ends up. Go Jimmie!

Sorry to say that it looks like Governor's race is going to Mike Beebe. I am looking at the list of counties that have reported in, and to win Hutchinson had to do better than what I am seeing in some of these places like Baxter and Union Counties. It is not the total statewide that bothers me, because Benton and other GOP strongholds have not been heard from, but there are SWING counties, and Huctchinson is not doing well enough in them to make up the gap.

see list here...

Apparently some folks were impressed with Green AG candidate Rebecca Kennedy. 6%, a lot better than Lendall.

It does not look like it. Rod Bryan is actually doing better around the state. A tribute to good grooming, a smooth voice and pretty face, along with the internet. Bryan reminds me of a younger version of an unsaved Holt.

What about Incumbent GOP state rep. Roy Ragland getting blanked 898 to 0 in the voting so far? Put me down as suspecting some kind of voting machine error in those precincts.

All of you better hang on to your money because our taxes are about to go through the roof. All of you that have grandchildren better start homeschooling them because they WILL be bused 3 hours to school. And we can all throw morals out the window because with Beebe and McDaniel in there, we'll have gay marriage. We can also kiss fair election goodbye, too. Charlie Daniels can't do his job because he's soused 24/7. Welcome to the new, socialist state of Arkansas. That should be put on the sign as people come into the state. Would do very well to attract both new business and touristst, because Lord knows that Beebe's socialist policies won't do it. Yes, we are currently 49th in education. Can't hold to that hope because we're about to be 50th once again. I swear, the people in this state are absolutely moronic. They absolutely deserve what they just got. And they can all shut their mouths in the process and don't complain because it's their own fault!

Yeah we'd be praising them if they didn't elect a slate of corrupt Democrats into office, because then they would've proven they had at least a pea-sized brain upstairs. As it is...

This thread showed how ignorant you all are about elections in Arkansas.

And for those of you who aren't happy, don't let the screen door hit you in the ass as you leave the state.

We don't need your hatred. And tonight you were resoundingly defeated for you disgusting, negative attacks couched in Christianity when, the truth is, you're all far from Christian.

God knew.

And he handed you a bitter defeat.

Now repent!

This might be sending a clear message, that Arkansas is still related by the Democrat gene they were born with. I see it as the best opportunity to advance the Independent voter who is disenfranchised with big money and lobbyist rule. It will be only our fault as Independents, In my case Costitution Party if we dont start today and fill all the unopposed races for 2008 and to identify our Party as a serious threat to both the formal parties, You have the Red the Blue States and now we need to fill in that flag with the White of the Constitution Party for the color of the paper our founding document was written on. We wont do it without involving everyone who has just voted basically against both sides.

Did anyone ever explain to Jim Holt how NOT to be a sore loser? Instead of saying "Bill Halter bought the election" and "my condolences to the Democrat party for electing him", can he not simply say "Congratulations" like Asa did? Give me a break. What a baby!

He's just honest. Halter did buy the election.

My condolences to the people of Arkansas.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

How did Halter buy the election? Is it because he actually had money to advertise? Is Jim just upset that no one would give him any money, again? I'm the first to say that money can't buy you class, but I guess in this case it can. Jim Holt has zero class. I never thought I could compare Jim Holt to Al Gore, but they seem to have the same character.

Halter hadn't been in this state for 27 years prior to this election. Nearly ALL of his money came from out of state, and most of that from California. Just about all of Holt's money came from right here in Arkansas.

Do you think that there are just some compassionate liberals in California who care enough about us here in Arkansas to send millions of dollars to get a liberal elected to a job that earns around $40K a year?

And Holt was supposed to be so well known by the entire state. Remember how that was all you used to talk about? He was supposed to have this huge following of voters. I think you were told before that the more people get to know Holt, the more they don't like him. Maybe this time he'll finally realize he can't win an election. He can't even win against someone who hasn't been in our state in 27 years. He could've at least had a little class in the end.

I think that you see everything in Holt-hating glasses- that's what I think.

This was Jim's second run; it was Asa's third, after he'd been a prominent congressman, head of DEA, and deputy undersecretary of the DHHS. Asa dumped millions on this race, as did Halter. Holt spent less than $200K. You were worried about Holt embarassing Asa and the Republicans, yet Jim got more votes. But instead of trying to understand why Jim always does better than the other Republicans on a tiny fraction of the money, you attack him for not sucking up to Halter and the Dems.

So much for your vile-laced theories.

Jim got more votes than Asa. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that Jim was running against one other unknown person. Asa was running against 3 other people and one was very well known. Jim did embarrass the Republicans by crying like a baby instead of acting like a grown man and saying "congratulations". It's that simple.

10:51 AM, November 08, 2006  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Tell me, genius: just how many of Rod Bryan or Jim Lendall's votes do you think Asa would have gathered had those two leftists not been in the race?

You've never liked Holt, and now you're just nit-picking ways to find fault with him. It's time to stop hating Jim and congratulate him for running well in an overall tough election. Is that so hard?

11:06 AM, November 08, 2006  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm not 10:51, but I have something to say. Holt didn't run well. He did awful. And frankly, I'm just following his lead. As soon he shows a little class and congratulates Halter, maybe people will do the same for him.

11:15 AM, November 08, 2006

What a bunch of whiners. I don't know anything about Holt not congratulating Halter, and I don't care. And if you don't feel like congratulating Holt, don't.

Or you could read it on their website or you could pick one up at almost any store in Arkansas. They usually don't make you get an entire subscription just to read one paper.

Hello
I have come across on the arkansaswatch.blogspot.com and i thought that i would pop in and say hello.......
my fun story

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the
criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be
institutionalised.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a
teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to
empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the
bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.

"No," said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a
bed near the window?"
