Region 8 Senate Candidate Reviewing Votes for Challenge to Runoff Results

JUNE 27, 2006 - Posted at 7:21 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The attorney for an Arkansas state Senate candidate whose runoff victory was reversed in a recount said he's reviewing one county's voter records for a possible legal challenge.

Mike Easley, who represents state Representative Arnell Willis, said yesterday that he's been reviewing voter rolls from Saint Francis County since Friday afternoon.

Results in Senate District 16 originally showed Willis of Helena-West Helena defeating Earle school superintendent Jack Crumbly by 28 votes.  A recount the next week in St. Francis County gave Crumbly 100 more votes, making him the winner.

Easley said Willis also planned to file a cross-complaint in a lawsuit filed by Alvin Simes, who missed getting into the runoff by 370 votes.

Willis in the motion asked for the state Election Commission to conduct a count of all votes cast in the primary and to order a special runoff election between Simes and Willis.
