(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the Arkansas gubernatorial race for Republican Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Decision Desk HQ also called the state’s U.S. Senate race for Republican incumbent John Boozman.
Arkansas’ gubernatorial election is one of many being seen as a referendum on former President Donald Trump’s sway on the Republican party.
Trump’s former press secretary, Huckabee Sanders (R), butted heads with a number of opponents vying for the job of former Gov. Asa Hutchinson, not eligible for re-election due to term limits — including on issues of taxes, education and medical rights for transgender children.
On Tuesday, 470 seats in the U.S. Congress (35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats) are up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
Early voting in Arkansas started on Oct. 24, and polls for in-person voting will be open 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
