Candidate filing – Arkansas State Senate (Nov. 4)

The filing period for candidates to appear on the 2016 ballot in Arkansas began on Monday and will continue through next Monday, November 9th.  In this post here, I highlighted three State Senate districts where significant primary or general election contests had been determined by the first day’s filing activity.

In order to better keep track of things, I created the following chart of confirmed election matchups that I will update throughout this week:

One further note: Since I had been unable to find any announcement by the President Pro Tempore of the Arkansas State Senate, Sen. Jonathan Dismang (SD #28), indicating his intent to run for re-election, I reached out to him.  Sen. Dismang confirmed to me directly that he is indeed running in 2016 and expects to file his candidacy by the end of the week.
