Block that cliche

Posted By on Fri, Apr 23, 2010 at 12:37 PM

How slow a day is it? So slow that Politico is quoting Bill Halter as playing the low-expectations game in advance of tonight's debate with Sen. Blanche Lincoln and a third Democratic candidate, D.C. Morrison. It will be on KATV, C-SPAN, KUAR and more.

Meeting voters at a bakery in North Little Rock hours ahead of his faceoff with Lincoln, Halter urged reporters to remember that as a member of the world's greatest deliberative body, Lincoln "has far more debate experience than I do."

His goal, Halter said, is "just to get our message out. Try to break through all this clutter of advertising and so forth and just get a straight shot at telling people what I'd like to do as a senator.'

Lincoln's rottweiler did her advance talking, as per usual.

The senator’s campaign manager, Steve Patterson, sent a memo to reporters attempting to frame the debate as “a clear choice between a U.S. Senator who stands up for what she believes in and fights for Arkansans day-in and day-out, and one challenger who has based his campaign on a single accomplishment while refusing to tell Arkansas voters where he stands on most issues.”
