Lincoln: No Meet the Press

Posted By on Mon, Apr 26, 2010 at 2:23 PM

It's not church, but Mom that will keep Sen. Blanche Lincoln from debating Bill Halter on Meet the Press. She'll turn down the invite for a May 9 appearance. From her campaign:

“It's not surprising that Bill Halter would welcome another trip to Washington since most of his support is based there,” Lincoln campaign spokesman Katie Laning Niebaum said.  “However, Senator Lincoln will not interrupt her plans to be in Arkansas with her family on Mother’s Day in order to appear before a national television audience, most of whom do not vote in Arkansas.”

The campaign noted there have already been two debates and a third is scheduled in Little Rock May 14.

  • 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.
