Cooper, Rockwell Advance In Jonesboro Runoffs
Tonight, in the Jonesboro special Senate election runoffs, John Cooper (R) and Steve Rockwell (D) defeated their opponents to advance to the general election on January 14th.
Cooper, a former businessman, defeated Republican Dan Sullivan by 67 votes (1486-1419). Rockwell defeated Democrat Radius Baker by 24 votes (1215-1191).
In a statement, Cooper said he was excited about the upcoming debate:
I’m excited about debating ethics reform, healthcare, and ways to limit government spending. My objective during this campaign has been to promote a conservative view of state government. We’ve been successful in the primary and runoff because of this and I believe it will carry us to the State Senate.”
More coverage of this race in the coming days. Stay tuned!

I was glad to see John Cooper win in the run off. I bellieve he would be good for us in the state senate seat. I believe he is a very honest conservative and that is what we need.
