Arkansas, a state where the Democratic Party is dominated by Republicans, will hold its primary for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, but the GOP will have a strong contender to run for governor against Republican incumbent Dan Jones.
The election will mark the first time in U.P. history that both parties will have three candidates running for the same office, and both are facing challenges from outside groups, according to the Associated Press.
The Republican primary, which will likely be held on Tuesday evening, has been dominated by Jones and Democratic challenger Mike Miller, a former prosecutor who has criticized Jones for failing to pass any of his major policies in the state.
The primary also includes two other Democrats, state Sen. Joni Wicker, a Democrat, and former state Rep. David Stryker, a Republican.
Both Jones and Miller have been vocal critics of Trump.
While Trump is a popular Republican in the U, he is viewed with suspicion by some Republicans.
In a series of recent interviews, Jones has said that he is a “fraud” who is in danger of losing his reelection bid against the incumbent governor.
In November, Jones said he thought Trump’s plan to deport 11 million illegal immigrants was a “great idea.”
Trump has also called Jones “the least popular senator” and said he will be unable to win re-election because of his ties to Jones.
Jones is a former judge who served two terms as governor from 2004 to 2007, when he was re-elected.
He is a member of the Arkansas National Guard and a member the state’s Air National Guard.
Jones has said he would not seek a second term in the House of Representatives, but he is also a registered Democrat, so his campaign will be considered a political action committee, according the AP.
The state GOP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
