The election in Arkansas for the United States senate will be on the 2nd of November 2010.
The current US Senator Blanche Lincoln, who is from the Democratic Party from the state of Arkansas, has announced that she will be seeking re-election this year. However, if we look back to the history of Arkansas, we see that Arkansas has the history of only one Republican Senator, Tim Hutchinson since the time of Reconstruction. However, he too was defeated after his first term by Mark Pryor of the Democratic Party.

Blanche Lincoln however, had to face a very tough competition from Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter, because some Liberal groups went on criticizing Lincoln for issues relating to health care and environmental regulations.

However, she narrowly prevailed over her Republican competitor Lt. Gov. Bill Halter and is running for a third term in the US Senate seat which she holds since 1999.

She will be competing now with John Boozman, a former local school board member.  He is running ahead in the race than Blanche Lincoln by almost 25 points. The seat in Arkansas is highly anticipated to go Republican this year. With Lincoln’s popularity being the way down, there’s all the more possibility of it.
