Hey, things may be a little slow over here of late, but rest assured that our running lists of potential and announced 2010 Arkansas candidates are being updated regularly.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s Mike Wickline runs with a report today on some races to watch (subscription only link), which included a couple of names we didn’t have yet, so I’ve added them to the lists in the appropriate places.
In case you missed it last week, The Tolbert Report noted that GOP Rep. Mark Martin is eyeing a race for secretary of state. Republicans have been slow to field candidates for the state constitutional offices, since everyone thinks they should be the one to replace Sen. Blanche Lincoln, so Martin’s entry to the secretary of state race should be a welcome one.
And don’t forget that Tuesday brings a special election in Arkansas Senate District 4, where former GOP Rep. Michael Lamoureux faces Democrat John Burnett and Independent Tachany Evans to replace outgoing Republican Sen. Sharon Trusty. Voting is already under way. (UPDATE: Lamoureux won the race handily.)
