Senatorial strategy

Posted By on Wed, Sep 2, 2009 at 10:40 AM

The hordes running for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination? Republican state Sen. Gilbert Baker isn't worried about them. He's running against incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln. Not yet in the race for 24 hours, Baker is already issuing mild zingers of Lincoln -- this one for her belated conclusion that a public health insurance option is a bad thing. When Gilbert Baker agrees with you, Sen. Lincoln, well ....

State Senator Gilbert Baker released the following statement regarding Senator Lincoln’s opposition to a public option.

“It is great that Senator Lincoln has settled on a position regarding the public option.  Arkansans, like me, are opposed to government-run healthcare and have clearly expressed their cherished right to free speech over the course of the August recess.  Arkansans deserve conviction from their candidates in their beliefs, whether that is government-run healthcare, card check legislation, or other extreme positions being pushed by President Obama’s administration.”

Question for Sen. Baker: So you support shutting down Medicare, Medicaid and the VA? You got room for all the grannies who'll be turned out of hospitals and nursing homes?
