Flippo Defeats Burris In Senate Runoff, Rutledge Advances To General Election
We’ll have more tomorrow on the results of tonight’s state Republican runoff elections, but I wanted to pass along these vote totals before calling it a night:
- 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.

A great victory for true conservatives!
As much as I liked Eric Cantor getting beat, this was by far the better victory !!!! I pray this is a tidal wave that will flow across this great state !!!!
