Many candidates have settled in just waiting for the word, but one race in particular is still running hot, in fact just heating up in the final weeks and days.
The race between House Representative Ed Garner and State Representative David Sanders has left both candidates with very different objectives in the last two days.
House representative Ed Garner has been on the defensive
"Totally false, that is totally false," said Rep. Garner, disputing claims from Rep. Sanders about owing nearly $75,000 in taxes.
"It's not about checking the facts it's just about smearing someone and I can only guess that that's because they're nervous about the outcome."
Despite the disputes, Sanders continued to claim case after case of Garner owing thousands of dollars of tax money to the state from his small bakery business.
Rep. Sanders said, "I think it's unfortunate that that happened but, the facts are just the facts."
Garner hasn't laid back completely. He touts his experience over Sanders needing to be a deciding factor in votes.
Rep. Garner said, "He wanted to run for office with less than 10 months in office so there's a big gap between experience in the legislature."
Both candidates will continue to campaign Tuesday, whether out on the streets, at the polling places, or even calling you on your phone.
"Sometimes these primary battles pit friend against friend," said Rep. Sanders. "I say in this case may the best man win."
Whoever that may be has another long campaign road into general election later this year.
"Whoever wins this race has got to get it cranked up and has to start because we got a heck of a race in November," said Rep. Sanders.
Neither candidates have a necessarily unique pre-election routine. Both of them said hard work is their tradition.
Rep. Sanders will have a watch party at American Pie Pizza Company in Maumelle.
Rep. Garner also has a gathering planned in Maumelle at Cheers.
