  • DAN KEMP: Wins big-money battle.
After millions of dollars poured in, the results are in: Shawn Womack and Dan Kemp will be new members of the Arkansas Supreme Court.

Local media outlets are calling the race for Womack, who defeated Clark Mason in the race for an Associate Justice seat, replacing retiring Justice Paul Danielson.

The race has also been called for Kemp, who defeated current Associate Justice Courtney Goodson for the position of Chief Justice. UA law professor Howard Brill currently serves as Chief Justice, filling out the term of Jim Hannah, who resigned last year and passed away in January.

With 45 percent of precincts reporting, Kemp is up 58-42 and Womack is up 67-33.
