Run, Bill, run

Posted By on Mon, Feb 22, 2010 at 1:53 PM

MoveOn.org says that 92 percent of its Arkansas members want Lt. Gov. Bill Halter to challenge U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

State MoveOn members were deeply dissatisfied with Sen. Lincoln's performance in the Senate: Jennifer P. from Little Rock told us, "Lincoln never met a special interest she didn't like. It's hard to express just how awful she has been as a senator. I don't know of anyone who will vote for her if she shows up on the November ballot."

So today we're sending Halter a petition telling him we'll have his back if he decides to run. Can you sign our petition urging him to get in the race?

The petition says, "We've had enough of Democrats like Blanche Lincoln who listen to big corporations instead of their constituents. We urge you to challenge her in the primary and we'll work hard to support you if you do."
