That's no lady, etc.

Campaign mailer today from U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln:

The national Republicans have put a target on my back and I expect one of the toughest campaigns in my life. But I can assure you that if they want a fight, I plan on giving them a fight in my own ladylike way.

 

FULL LINCOLN SOLICITATION

The national Republicans have put a target on my back and I expect one of the toughest campaigns in my life. But I can assure you that if they want a fight, I plan on giving them a fight in my own ladylike way.


But I need your help to do it. We are approaching the September 30 fundraising deadline and we are trying to reach 150 new online donors in the next 5 days. Will you be one of them? Your contribution--even $5--will show our critics that we won't back down.

In its 184-year history, the Senate Agriculture Committee had not been chaired by a Senator from Arkansas -- until September 9, 2009 the day I was honored by the confidence of my colleagues to serve in this position. It makes me the first Arkansan AND the first women to chair the committee.


Today, one in every six Arkansas jobs is filled by the agriculture sector. Having grown up in a seventh generation Arkansas farm family in Phillips County, I have always cherished our natural state's farm heritage and rural lifestyle. I know that my Dad, Jerdi Lambert, a lifetime farmer and conservationist would be so proud.


And he would be proud of the campaign that we are running together. I know that the National Republicans are going to do whatever they can to defeat me. You can help me be ready for that fight by making a contribution today. Even a gift as little as $5 can make a huge difference.

As my responsibilities grow in the Senate, I plan to fight even harder for Arkansas. My top priorities will always remain job creation for Arkansans, improving our health care system and getting America's economy back on track. And we've got to do it all while cutting back on government spending.


We have a long, tough fight ahead of us. But, standing together, I know we can do it.
With Arkansas pride,
