Notes:
Republicans held all statewide and federal offices before the election and that did not change.  Sen. John Boozman (R) had little difficulty in his re-election bid, defeating former federal prosecutor Conner Eldridge (D) and former Tull Mayor Frank Gilbert (L).  Boozman carried 64 counties to 11 for Eldridge.  The one debate occurred on Oct. 12 (+).  For 2015-16 the Boozman campaign reported disbursements of $6.0 million compared to $2.3 million for the Eldridge campaign (+).
