Everyone—including ourselves—is talking about the sweeping gains Republicans made last night. It’s undeniable that Republicans had some big wins in Congress and across Arkansas yesterday. However, I can’t help but wonder if they might have won bigger had they put forth some extra effort.

Everyone has pointed out the historic gains Republicans made in the U.S. House—such as the fact that this was the biggest gain for a political party in Congress in 62 years. However, there are a number of notable shifts right here in Arkansas.
