AP Projects McDaniel as Winner in Attorney General Race

JUNE 14, 2006 - Posted at 10:28 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Dustin McDaniel has won the Democratic runoff for attorney general.  He narrowly beat North Little Rock City Attorney Paul Suskie for the party's nomination for the state's top law enforcement position.

With 99 percent of 2,515 precincts reporting unofficial results, McDaniel won 51 percent of the vote and Suskie won 49 percent.

McDaniel is a state representative from Jonesboro and a former police officer.  Suskie is North Little Rock's city attorney and served in Afghanistan last year as a major in the Arkansas National Guard Judge Advocate General Corps.

McDaniel will face Republican Gunner DeLay, a former state senator from Fort Smith who had no opposition in the May primary.

McDaniel is expected to make a statement this morning at his Jonesboro home.
