A few photos below from Joyce Elliott's Primary Election Night watch party at Cajun's (May 18, 2010):
Against four opponents, the Arkansas State Senator won the popular vote with 40 % of the vote in the Democratic primary for the U.S. House seat in Arkansas' 2nd District. In Arkansas, a candidate must win just over 50 % of the popular vote to win the nomination, so she'll face Speaker of the Arkansas House Robbie Wills in a June 8 run-off.
Shelly Baron, my good friend, and member of Joyce's campaign staff as an employee of CDP Strategies, watches election results come in:
