FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) - Arkansas State Representative Bob Ballinger, R-Berryville, announced Monday afternoon he'd seek the seat of Arkansas State Senator Bryan King, R-Green Forest.
Ballinger currently serves House District 97, which includes Berryville, Eureka Springs, Hindsville, Goshen and more.
King serves Senate District 5, which also includes Berryville and Eureka Springs, but goes as far south as Lavaca.
On the Paul Harrell Program Monday, King said he'd wait until later in the summer to announce whether he'll seek reelection.
"It's definitely open for anybody to run it," King said, speaking on his district.
