The Chamber giveth ...

Posted By on Sat, May 1, 2010 at 6:58 AM

A New York Times blogger devotes some attention to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's current robust support of Sen. Blanche Lincoln, even on legislation on which it has disagreed.

Will the Chamber stick with Lincoln should she survive Bill Halter's challenge?

Mr. Fielder [of the Chamber] declined to say if the organization would back the incumbent in the general election. “These ads speak for our current support for Sen. Lincoln,” he said in an e-mail message.

Note the word "current." This is another testimonial, in essence, for Bill Halter. The chamber wants to beat him. They'll worry later about the general election.

Also on the Lincoln-Halter front, John Brummett explains how Lincoln could have scored some of the points she's attempting to make against Halter without being uncharacteristicallly dishonest and personally nasty.
