Who’s running this year for the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office?

By: 3 May 2010 No Comment

Due to term limits, Arkansas Secretary of State Charlie Daniels – a Democrat – can’t run for another term in office.

Daniels, who was the commissioner of state lands prior to being elected secretary of state in 2002, is running for auditor of state. There are four candidates — three Democrats and a Republican — who hope to fill in in for Daniels. The Democrats will face each other in the May 18 primary and the winner of that race will face Republican Mark Martin in the November general election.

We’ve got interviews with all four candidates here at First Arkansas News. Take a few minutes to adjust those speakers, sit back and decide which candidate will get our vote this year.
