A March 2013 report released by Governing named Arkansas' attorney general seat as "vulnerable" to partisan switch heading into the 2014 elections. The rating arose from concerns that Democratic incumbent Dustin McDaniel's recent personal issues -- he was forced to end his long-anticipated gubernatorial plans after being exposed twice for philandering -- has sufficiently alienated voters against McDaniel, toward electing a Republican attorney general the next election.
