Filing update IT'S OVER



Sen. Steve Bryles joins the Democratic field for 1st District Congress.

Former legislator Doug Matayo makes eight in the Republican primary for 3rd District Congress.

With a half-hour to spare, prima donna Jim Holt made it eight Repubs in the race for U.S. Senate. In this bunch, Gilbert Baker looks like Winston Churchill.

UPDATE: No final day surprises. It looks like Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and Secretary of State Charlie Daniels are the two most dominant politicians in Arkansas. Neither drew a Democratic or Republican opponent -- McDaniel for re-election, Daniels for auditor. (I don't know if the Green Party will be challenging these.) Oh, and Treasurer Martha Shoffner also was unopposed at the statewide level. Contested Republican primaries for every federal office. No challenges to Democrats in the 3rd and 4th Congressional Districts.

Also, Willard Proctor didn't file to regain his Pulaski judgeship despite the law barring the recently ousted judge from running again. I don't know if that means his legal fight is at an end, or not.

Here's the secretary of state's final list of Republican and Democratic candidates.

Here's the list of independents who may yet qualify for the ballot by submitting sufficient signatures by May 1.

Still pending are Green Party nominees.
