A two-term senator and former representative from Arkansas’ First Congressional District, Lincoln won only 37 percent of the vote to GOP challenger John Boozman’s 58 percent (with an estimated 88 percent of precincts reporting at time of writing).
Lincoln won her first two Senate elections with 55 percent (1998) and 56 percent (2004) of the vote. This time, she survived a primary challenge, surprising many. But she trailed Mr. Boozman throughout the campaign, and not even an appearance with former President (and former Arkansas Gov.) Bill Clinton could get her over the hurdle.
