Baker's bucks

Posted By on Mon, Oct 5, 2009 at 11:27 AM

Sen. Gilbert Baker has announced $500,000 in campaign contributions during his first month as a candidate for U.S. Senate.

I wonder if that's more than the cumulative totals of the rest of the Magnificent Seven of GOP candidates.

Baker's statement:

 

Conway – Senator Gilbert Baker released the following statement regarding his fundraising efforts since launching his campaign on September 1, 2009:
 
“I continue to be humbled by the overwhelming support our campaign receives, and I am extremely grateful to those who have supported my campaign in a significant financial way during these tough economic times. 
 
Since launching my campaign on September 1st, we have received contributions totaling just over $500,000.  This is a strong beginning to having the necessary resources to communicate our common sense message to Arkansas voters.
 
“I look forward to a campaign about creating more jobs and boosting our economy.  Within this, two things are clear:  One, Arkansans deserve a Senator who will never be a swing vote on nationalized healthcare, cap and trade, and card check legislation -- all of which affect small business, farmers, and other important aspects of Arkansas’ economic engine.  
 
Two, Arkansans believe the next United States Senator should be a check and balance to the extreme agenda of the national Democratic Party. ”

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
