LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Democrats running for congressional seats in south and east Arkansas are going negative and touting their electability as early voting is set to begin in the primary runoffs for the two seats.
Voters can cast their ballots early starting Tuesday for the Democratic primary runoffs in the 1st and 4th congressional districts. The matchups for the seats headline the ballot for the June 12 runoff. The runoff is expected to draw fewer voters than last month's primary.
Secretary of State Mark Martin's office hasn't predicted how many voters in the two districts will cast a ballot in the runoff election. Voters will also pick the nominees in five legislative primaries, but most of the focus is on the congressional matchups that cover more than half of the state's territory.
