Arkansas: 3 Mayors ousted in recall votes, 1 survives

In what officials are calling the most recalls in one cycle (though they had 6 votes in 2012), 3 Arkansas mayors were kicked out of office, with one surviving.

Earle Mayor Carolyn Jones was removed 522-239 (the replacement vote will be in January); Humphrey Mayor Rodney Harrison lost 120-93, with an interim mayor being named and it sounds like the job will be filled by appointment. Hartford Mayor James Baker lost 141-87.

Hughes Mayor Grady Collum survived 277-232.
