Back and forth

Posted By on Mon, Apr 5, 2010 at 8:27 AM

The Washington Post this morning has a pretty good summary of what's happening on the Democratic side of the U.S. Senate race between Sen. Blanche Lincoln and Lt. Gov. Bill Halter. It's nothing new to most of you, but it does provide a fairly succinct run-down of what's at issue in the race and how each candidate is trying to spin it.

Halter contends that the seat is as good as lost to resurgent Republicans if the centrist Lincoln wins the May 18 primary. He said after leaping into the race last month, "My sense is that people want somebody to fight for them."

Lincoln counters that Halter, who returned to Arkansas to run for office after 20 years in government and business, misunderstands the Arkansas electorate. Touting moderation as a virtue, she calls herself "the rope in the tug of war."
