Holt claims a supporter

Posted By on Thu, Sep 7, 2006 at 6:08 AM

Jim Holt has issued a news release pronouncing himself pleased with opponent Bill Halter's narrow lead in recent polling and saying that a Democratic leader had announced his endorsement of Holt. Well, actually, it's a former operative for a Democratic candidate whose mother is running for legislature as a Republican.

Dan Noble, former campaign manager for Senator Tim Wooldridge, said, “This election cycle I have chosen to volunteer for Senator Holt’s campaign and provide any assistance to his campaign in Little Rock and the surrounding areas.  I still consider myself an Arkansas Conservative Democrat.  Unfortunately, the Democratic nominee this year does not represent those beliefs. There are great differences between the two campaigns for Lt Governor, and I look forward in the following weeks to getting that message out to the people of Arkansas.”

Noble said, “This race is not just about serving the people of Arkansas by electing Senator Holt, a veteran who has devoted his life to serving his country and doing what is best for the people of this state.  This  race is also about showing why Holt’s opponent is not right for this office.  Senator Holt’s opponent may have left this state over two decades ago with Arkansas values, but he returned a California Liberal and should not be given the opportunity to serve the people of Arkansas.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
