District 34 Democratic primary ends in runoff; Joy Springer set to face Ryan Davis - Arkansas Times

Democrats held a special primary yesterday for House District 34, with the contest ending in a runoff. Joy Springer, who received around 43 percent of the votes, will take on Ryan Davis, who nabbed 34 percent.

With no one securing a majority, a runoff between Springer and Davis will be held Feb. 11, to nominate a candidate to finish the term of Rep. John Walker, who died in October.

Springer, 63, is office manager at Walker’s law firm. Davis, 41, is the director of the UALR’s Children International.

Attorney Lee Miller came in third with 16 percent of the vote, while H. “Otis” Tyler, the retired assistant dean at the UAMS College of Pharmacy, took 7 percent.

Turnout was, as expected, light: Just 694 votes were cast in total.

The winner of the primary will almost certainly take the seat in this deep-blue Little Rock district, though the Democrat will still have to top independent candidate Roderick Talley in the general election.
