State Legislative Election Results

Arkansas House of Representatives2014 Arkansas State Senate Elections

The slim Republican majority in the Arkansas House of Representatives was under threat in the 2014 general election. Of the 29 incumbents that did not run for re-election, 18 were Republicans. On the other hand, more Republicans than Democrats were uncontested by a major party. Issues such as the Affordable Care Act and a proposed private alternative to Medicaid caused contention in 2014.[1][2]

The Arkansas House of Representatives was one of 20 state legislative chambers noted by Ballotpedia staff as being a 2014 battleground chamber. The Arkansas House had a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republicans of three seats, which amounted to 3 percent of the chamber. As a percentage, this is the smallest partisan difference for a legislative body in any state. This difference is even smaller when considering Fred Smith, a member of the Green Party, who usually caucuses with the Democratic Party and was running as a Democrat before losing his primary in May.[3][4]

In 2012, a total of 17 districts were competitive or mildly competitive. There were seven districts where the margin of victory was 5 percent or less in the 2012 elections. Another 10 districts had a margin of victory between 5 and 10 percent.

Elections for the office of Arkansas House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on May 20, 2014; a runoff election took place where necessary on June 10, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was March 3, 2014.

Following the general election, there was no change to the majority control of the Arkansas House of Representatives. The slim Republican majority strengthened considerably, their seats increasing from 51 to 64. The Democratic minority decreased from 48 to 36 seats, and the Green Party lost their only seat in the chamber, Representative Fred Smith who traditionally caucused with the Democrats.

Constitutional provisions lay out the requirements to hold office as a member of the legislature. Article 5, Section 4 of the Arkansas Constitution states:

No person shall be a Senator or Representative who, at the time of his election, is not a citizen of the United States, nor any one who has not been for two years next preceding his election, a resident of this State, and for one year next preceding his election, a resident of the county or district whence he may be chosen. Senators shall be at least twenty-five years of age, and Representatives at least twenty-one years of age.[5]

Competitiveness

Candidates unopposed by a major party

Most races were expected to be lightly contested or not at all. In 66 of the 100 districts up for election in 2014, there was only one major party candidate running for election. A total of 29 Democrats and 37 Republicans were guaranteed election barring unforeseen circumstances.

However, the amount of competitive races presented the possibility of having the scales tipped in Arkansas. Two major party candidates faced off in the general election in 34 of the 100 districts up for election. Four of those seats held competitive elections in 2012 with a margin of victory ranging from 0 to 5 percent. Nine other elections were mildly competitive, with a margin of victory of 5 to 10 percent. Those competitive districts were:

Competitive

  • District 41: Danny Knight (D) was defeated by Karilyn Brown (R) in the general election for the seat vacated by incumbent Jim Nickels (D). Nickels won by a margin of victory of 4 percent in 2012.
  • District 52: Radius H. Baker (D) was defeated by Dwight Tosh (R) in the general election. Incumbent John "Hutch" Hutchison, defeated in the Republican primary, won by a margin of victory of 0.50 in 2012.
  • District 61: Incumbent Scott Baltz (D) defeated Doug Driesel (R) in the general election. Baltz won by a margin of victory of 3 percent in 2012.
  • District 73: Incumbent John Catlett (D) was defeated by Mary Bentley (R) in the general election. Catlett beat her by a margin of victory of 4 percent in 2012.

Previously competitive, now unopposed
Two districts that held a competitive election in 2012 have only one major party candidate in 2014.

  • District 13: Incumbent David Hillman (D) ran unopposed in the Democratic primary and was unchallenged in the general election. Hillman won by a margin of victory of 2 percent in 2012.
  • District 39: Incumbent Mark Lowery (R) ran unopposed in the Republican primary and was unchallenged in the general election. Lowery won by a margin of victory of 5 percent in 2012.

Primary challenges

A total of five incumbents faced primary competition on May 20. 29 incumbents did not seek re-election in 2014 and another 66 incumbents advanced past the primary without opposition. The state representatives facing primary competition were:

Retiring incumbents

29 incumbent representatives did not run for re-election, while 71 (71.0%) ran for re-election. A list of those incumbents, 11 Democrats and 18 Republicans, can be found above.

Context

The GOP owned the State House heading into the 2014 elections largely thanks to the party's surge in the prior two elections. Due to the large Republican gains in the elections of 2010 and 2012, partisan control of the State House was expected to come down to just three seats.

One issue of contentious debate during the primary season was the federal healthcare law (the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare") and the state of Arkansas's alternative to the Medicaid expansion called "the private option."[1] The private option in Arkansas devotes federal dollars for private health insurance to be purchased by low-income state residents.[2] In particular, Republican state representatives were challenged in their primary races depending on their support or opposition to the private option plan, and the party in power in 2015 controls the fate of this plan. On the other hand, the private option plan did not prove to be a contentious issue in Democratic primary races. At least four Republican incumbent representatives faced primary challenges based on the private option: State Rep. Sue Scott supported the private option plan, while representatives Randy Alexander, Jim Dotson, and John Hutchison opposed the private option plan. While Scott and Dotson were victorious in their primary races, Alexander and Hutchison were defeated by primary challengers Lance Eads and Dwight Tosh, respectively.[2]
