Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

This is because Democrats lusted after Arkansas for its potential electoral votes in favor of Van Buren. In the end, they managed to push the bill through. On June 15, 1836, the stalemate was broken, and Arkansas became the 25th state to enter the Union.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
