Lincoln sets session with Farm Bureau

Posted By on Fri, Oct 23, 2009 at 4:23 PM

With a potential former Farm Bureau president, Stanley Reed, talking about running against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, it's a good time for her to make nice with the farm lobby/insurance company. She'll have a two-hour videconference with Farm Bureau members Tuesday and take questions from members and "invited guests."

Sick, poorly paid and uninsured? Take a number and the senator's staff will get back to you. Someday.

UPDATE: But maybe I should be more sympathetic. Rolling Stone reports that Sen. Jim Demint has sicced a teabagger phone attack on her office.


Who:        U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln

What:        A live videoconference with U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln for Arkansas Farm Bureau members and invited guests.

When:        This Tuesday, October 27, 2009, 9-11 a.m.

Where:       UAMS, 1123 S. University, Suite 400, Little Rock        

Why:        Sen. Lincoln will address the membership on pending health care reform and climate change legislation, as well as a brief overview of her first few weeks as chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. Near the end of the event, Farm Bureau members will be able to ask Sen. Lincoln questions.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
