Arkansas is generally not on a lot of people’s radar as a state that could turn blue any time soon. In fact, Arkansas is one of only five states where Trump had more millennial votes than Clinton. Given that the best strategy for progressives has been to turn out younger voters, this means that Arkansas will definitely be one of the harder states to claim.

Republicans have held a majority of Senate seats ever since 2014 and this has resulted in constant obstructions of any sort of social progress by then President Barack Obama, and they currently serve as the last line of defense towards the impeachment of current President Donald Trump.
