    Arnold defeated Saunders in the 2015 election when there was a field of eight candidates for the seat. Then, Caraway came back from term limits in 2017 and defeated Arnold, only to resign last year after he was indicted in connection with the Dallas County Schools bribery scandal.

    Saunders and Arnold emerged as the top two candidates from an amazing field of 13 that qualified for the special November election to replace Caraway.

    Arnold takes office on Dec. 19 to complete Caraway's remaining term and faces re-election in May 2019.
