Arkansas House of Representative Races, 2010

Here, let’s try to do something marginally useful for once. With the recent flurry of announcements of candidates for legislative seats in Arkansas, it’s been difficult to keep track of who’s announced for what. So let’s start doing so.

On this page, I’ve compiled a list of all 100 state House seats and their current occupants, along with some names of potential candidates. I intend for this to be a running list that we’ll develop over the coming months.

A few caveats:

1) This list is terribly incomplete. There are certainly candidates who have announced they’re planning to run or are rumored as candidates that I haven’t listed here. I largely put this list together from memory and from pulling together info from other blogs, so it’s not a comprehensive listing at this time.  Let me know in the comments or shoot me a message at david(at)davidkinkade(dot)com and I’ll add them to the list. This will be an ongoing project, so we should be able to develop a reasonably authoritative list in the weeks and months to come.

2) The list is terribly ugly. This is pretty utilitarian stuff—just a long list of seats and names. I might find a way to make it more aesthetically appealing in the future, but for now, let’s just get the information down in one place where it can be easily found. We can worry about making it pretty later, if necessary.

3) The list may include an occasional typo or error. If I’ve misspelled a name or misidentified a party label, let me know. It’s not meant to be perfect right out of the gate—we can clean it up as we go.

If you’ve got information to add or a correction to offer, drop it in the comments, or contact me directly.

We’ll also have pages for Arkansas Senate, constitutional officer races, and U.S. Senate and House races in the next few days, but let’s start with this for now.

(Thanks to Blake’s Think Tank, The Tolbert Report, The Arkansas Times and Under the Dome, as I used info from your blogs as references on several of the entries.)

UPDATE: Thanks to all who have sent in candidate names that were not included on the original list; I’ve been adding new names throughout the day. Keep ’em coming.

    David, thanks for your kind words about Blake. Trust me over the years I wanted to tell him the same thing. Wish he was more like that Trevor Drown guy, the Green Beret, runnimhg as an independent, that takes some real moxie.

    It’s awful what you called Blake Rutherford yesterday. Such language has no place in civil discourse. In the future, please use the clinical terms like “mangina”, instead of the “p” word.

    Arkansas Blogger, in the spirit of full disclosure I dared Mr. Kinkade to do it. This is twisted, but I kind of admire the boldness of it.

    I don’t know why you would want to put anything to sleep Mr. Kinkade, but if you are going to go to the trouble of aestheticating something, I recommend you add in bikini shots. Since you have 100 seats, I am thinking 100 bikini shots taking from the backside of said bikini subjects would just about do it. Of course, that is just an idea…

    Blake – Next time, pick “truth” instead of “dare”. It’s always the dares that will get you in trouble.

    The list of State Representatives isn’t marginal, it’s absolutely needed. I’ve been looking for something like this since lunch-it’s now 2:46.

    Will you be doing this with State Senators?

    Your service doesn’t have quite enough information to make it useful for most people, gut it’s a good start.

    I will be checking back.

    Thank you

    Vicky Morris is a democrat running for the Arkansas House of Representatives in district 27. I understand she is going to be the guest at a fundraiser in her honor during January.
    Do I need an invitation to attend this. Or may I purchase tickets at the door. Where will this be held?

    I do know that Vicky Morris running in district 27 for the House of Representative seat successfully registered at the Capitol on March 1, 2010. So her race is moving along in a very positive way. She is a conservative Democrat and is in touch with the people in her district.
