LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Potential candidates for state and federal offices in Arkansas will have less time to decide whether they’re going to run because of a shift in the state’s party primary elections.

The state has shifted its party primary elections from May 24 to March 1.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1V4qBLh ) that there’s disagreement between party leaders over whether the change will lead to fewer candidates filing for office next year.

Republican leaders say they’re finding plenty of people who want to seek office; Democratic leaders say they’re seeing some reluctance among potential candidates because of the state’s political climate.
