Above: The Gilbert Baker for U.S. Senate campaign releases this snippet of Baker’s interview, earlier today, with KATV-TV, Channel 7. Baker is battling for the No. 2 spot among a crowded field of Republicans seeking the U.S. Senate nomination. Republican voter turnout will be key for Baker in central Arkansas, particularly in his home county, Faulkner County.
Right: Bill Halter, seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, votes early Tuesday in North Little Rock. Halter has consistently trailed Lincoln in polls, behind anywhere from 9-12 points. He’ll need to move a big batch of undecided voters into his column and hope third candidate D.C. Morrison pulls a substantial vote in order to force a runoff with incumbent Lincoln. A runoff would follow in three weeks.
12:30 p.m. Tuesday, not pictured: House Speaker Robbie Wills makes a final push in downtown Little Rock, stopping to shake hands at Your Mama’s restaurant, trailed by KARK-TV, Channel 4 cameras. Wills could be in a runoff for the Democratic nomination for the 2nd District congressional seat with state Sen. Joyce Elliott or David Boling.

Below: Rick Crawford, in a Twitpic photo by Today’s THV reporter Faith Abubey, campaigning today in his race for the GOP nomination for the District 1 congressional seat. Crawford faces Princella Smith, a twenty-something in her first campaign. Smith received an endorsement from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Sunday. Even still, Crawford is the favorite to win outright in this race.
