The Arkansas attorney general election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Dustin McDaniel (D) is term-limited and unable to seek re-election.

Arkansas is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]

Race background

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.[10]
