FAYETTEVILLE - KNWA is your Local Election Headquarters.

Today, Arkansas voters will head to the polls to decide the GOP nominee for attorney general between central Arkansas attorneys Leslie Rutledge and David Sterling. Not only is it the only statewide runoff on the ballot, but it's also the first ever statewide runoff between Republicans in the Natural State.

Both candidates joined KNWA Today this morning to talk about the race, each other and whether or not they would be willing support the other in November after an extremely heated primary.

"We will cross that bridge when we get there," said Rutledge, who captured 47 percent of the primary vote, falling short of the 50 percent threshold needed to avoid a runoff.

"Quite honestly, I haven't even thought about that," said Sterling. "We'll explore that after the race it over."

When asked if he was willing to support a Democrat over a Republican in November, Sterling responded: "I can't imagine that happening."
