Will third parties have an impact on the 2014 elections in Arkansas? Well, probably not. But the presence of a third party can make things interesting in a close race. In the recent Virginia gubernatorial race Libertarian Robert Sarvis pulled in 6.5 percent of the vote, though he probably wasn't a result-flipping spoiler.

In this morning's paper, Sean Beherec takes a look (paywall) at the state Green and Libertarian parties in Arkansas, both on the ballot in 2014:

“I see a lot of people every day who are disgusted with Republicans and Democrats alike and are looking for an alternative. We feel that the Green Party is no longer the alternative but the necessary element,” [Green Party of Arkansas Treasurer Mark] Jenkins said.

Libertarian Party of Arkansas Chairman Jessica Paxton said her party also has benefited from “politicians acting like immature children, not getting any work done,” which has caused people to move to the Libertarian Party.
