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.
