Asa Hutchinson has been re-elected as Governor of Arkansas. Unofficial totals following Tuesday's elections have the Republican incumbent with 63 percent of the vote to Democratic challenger Jared Henderson's 35 percent. Independent Mark West has a bit under three percent.

In a victory speech at the Embassy Suites in Little Rock, Hutchinson said his re-election is a mandate from the voters for lower taxes, improved education and investment in the state's infrastructure.
