State Significance

Trump's former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced off against just one other Republican, Francis "Doc" Washburn, a former Little Rock radio host.

Sanders, whose father, Mike Huckabee, served as governor for 10 years, secured endorsements not just from Trump but also former Vice President Mike Pence, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and others.

In the Arkansas GOP primary for the Senate, Trump-backed Sen. John Boozman is seeking reelection.

He's held the seat since 2011 and faced deep-pocketed former NFL player Jake Bequette and Jan Morgan, who garnered the support of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and conservative political consultant Roger Stone.
