Arkansas Supreme Court Associate Justice Robin Wynne will be seeking reelection in 2022.
Wynne will be running for a second term as an associate Supreme Court Justice in the statewide, nonpartisan race. The election for this role will be held May 24, 2022.
He was first elected to an eight-year term in 2014. According to Ballotpedia, he received 52 percent of the vote in the 2014 election, defeating Tim Cullen.
Wynne will be contested in 2022 by an Arkansas district judge, Chris Carnahan.
“I have enjoyed serving on the Supreme Court and hope the people of Arkansas will elect me to a second term,” Wynne said in a statement. “I believe my nearly twenty years of experience as a judge, combined with my time in private practice in Fordyce, allows me to bring a unique perspective to my service on the Court. I feel it is important for Judges to be elected and I look forward to having the opportunity to visit with the people of Arkansas about my commitment to them and the judicial system.”
Before being elected to the state Supreme Court, Wynne was an Arkansas Court of Appeals judge and a district judge in Dallas County. He also serves as the Supreme Court liaison to the Unauthorized Practice of Law and Client Security Fund Committees and is an adjunct professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law.
