Halter v. Lincoln

Posted By on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 7:29 PM

Lt. Gov. Bill Halter talked on MSNBC tonight about Saturday's free medical clinic in Little Rock and the shame that a country of America's wealth leaves a half-million or more Arkansans without health coverage.

Lawrence O'Donnell, filling in for Keith Olbermann, asked if there was anything to calls from the left wing of the Democratic Party for a Halter challenge to U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln in 2010.

Halter said he wanted to talk about the clinic and the needs of sick people, not politics.

Sounds like good politics to me.
