Party Republican Democratic

Incumbent U.S. Senator

John Boozman

The 2016 United States Senate election in Arkansas will take place on November 8, 2016, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Arkansas, concurrently with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections.

Incumbent Republican Senator John Boozman has announced that he is running for re-election to a second term in office.[1] However, his poor fundraising - he had just $84,074 cash-on-hand at the end of 2013 - and his hospitalisation in 2014 for emergency heart surgery has led to speculation that he may retire.[2][3]
