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."

  • 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.
