LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The race for the presidency promises to be an interesting one.
As of now, neither President Barack Obama nor presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney have plans to visit the Natural State during their respective campaigns.
For Obama, it's a decision that could come back to bite him; early polls indicate that Democratic challenger John Wolfe (http://on.kthv.com/JhBNeM) trails the president by only seven points in the fourth district.
Although former Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum will appear on the ballot, votes for them will not go towards gaining any delegates. Votes for Ron Paul will still be counted, even though he is no longer actively campaigning.
Candidates from other parties are also looking to step into the Oval Office. The Libertarian Party (http://on.kthv.com/KsGC3f) has several contenders for their nomination, including former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson and R. Lee Wrights of Texas, though their names will not appear on the ballot in Arkansas.
We will be following the presidential race and updating the results of the primary on "Today's THV" and todaysthv.com. You can also follow our complete coverage on THV2 and follow local elections in our Campaign 2012 section.
