United States House of Representatives elections in Arkansas, 2010
This is an open seat, as Democratic incumbent Marion Berry is retiring.
Berry had always been reelected in this district by a wide margin since his first reelection campaign in 1998, and was unopposed in 2008. The district is very Republican (giving only 38% to Obama) on a national level despite a long history of electing Democrats to local and state level offices.
This district was represented by seven term Democrat Vic Snyder who was unchallenged in 2008 and received 70% of the vote. Snyder has announced that he would retire in 2010, reportedly after polls showed him trailing Republican Tim Griffin.
This district was represented by Republican John Boozman. Boozman has formally announced his 2010 plans for the U.S. Senate, against Blanche Lincoln. The district (comprising the northwest part of the state) has been held by the GOP since 1966.
