- In Senate District 17, businessman Scott Flippo defeated Rep. John Burris by roughly 200 votes
- In the Attorney General runoff, Leslie Rutledge defeated David Sterling by roughly 18%
Rutledge will face Democrat Rep. Nate Steel and Libertarian Aaron Cash in the fall. Flippo is unopposed in the fall; he will be the next senator from District 17.
In a victory speech in Mountain Home tonight, Flippo told his supporters:
I’ve never felt for a minute that this election was ever about me. It was never about me. This is about us, this about our district, this is about our state — this is about our future.
I’ll have some analysis on the Flippo race tomorrow.
