Cecile Bledsoe Narrowly Loses in AR-3

In what was otherwise a great night for candidates backed by Sarah Palin (Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Carly Fiorina in California) and other Republican women (Meg Whitman in California, Sharron Angle in Nevada, and Kristi Noem in South Dakota), outsider Cecile Bledsoe has lost to Steve Womack in the Arkansas Third District GOP primary, 52% to 48% with almost all precincts reporting. The Cook Political Report's David Wasserman tells me that the only outstanding precincts lean Womack.
