In 1992, Governor Bill Clinton won the U.S. presidential election, and shortly before Clintons inauguration in 1993, Lieutenant Governor Jim Guy Tucker was sworn in as the state’s forty-third governor. A special election was called to fill the open lieutenant governor position. Michael Dale Huckabee ran and won the position. In 1994, he won a comfortable reelection with fifty-eight percent of the popular vote. Huckabee went on to serve three terms as governor.
