U.S. Sen. John Boozman is headed to the November general election after turning back a Republican challenger he also defeated six years ago.
Boozman defeated North Little Rock businessman Curtis Coleman on Tuesday in a GOP U.S. Senate primary. He'll face Democrat Conner Eldridge and Libertarian Frank Gilbert in November.
Coleman had said the first-term incumbent wasn't sufficiently conservative. Boozman said he is a strong conservative, citing his endorsement by the National Rifle Association and the National Right to Life Committee.
