The Halter bandwagon?

Posted By on Tue, Oct 31, 2006 at 2:38 PM

Bill Halter issues a news release today announcing endorsements from 75 state legislators. Release on the jump. (Doesn't that mean 24 Democratic legislators did NOT endorse him?)


Today the Bill Halter for Lieutenant Governor campaign released the names of 75 State Legislators who have endorsed Bill Halter. 


“I am honored and grateful to receive the support of state legislators from all across Arkansas,” said Bill Halter.  “As Lieutenant Governor, I look forward to working with the next Governor and State Legislature as we improve our educational system and attract more and better paying jobs.”


Speaker of the House Bill Stovall of Quitman said: “Bill Halter has the vision we need in a Lieutenant Governor and the strong desire to make Arkansas an even better place to live and work.  Bill Halter is a consensus builder who can work across party lines to find common sense solutions to the challenges that face our state.” 


Senator Steve Bryles of Blytheville said: “Bill Halter knows how to get things done.  Unfortunately his opponent doesn’t and has accomplished very little during his time in the Legislature.  Jim Holt’s record is full of “no” votes that go against the needs of our children.  Jim Holt was the only State Senator to vote against covering more children under the ARKids First health care plan and was also the only State Senator to vote against higher pay for rural school teachers.  Bill Halter, unlike his opponent, will always put Arkansas’s children first.”
