LAND COMMISSIONER CANDIDATE: Mark Robertson.

Mark Robertson, a Little Rock landscape architect, is filing this morning as a Democrat for state land commissioner against incumbent Republican John Thurston. That fills a statewide slate for the Democratic Party in its quest to hold on to a majority of the seven statewide offices, a count that deterines partisan control of election commissions statewide.

Elvis Presley has also filed as a Libertarian candidate.

Robertson has been promoting his candidacy on social media. He made an unsuccessful race for state House in the Democratic primary two years ago against winner Warwick Sabin.
