  • A WIN: Lincoln and supporters celebrate

Blanche Lincoln's victory tonight over the organized labor attack was tailor-made for a narrative for November. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is already pumping it. Lincoln beat the special interests. She's the candidate to take on a Republican candidate of the special interests.

(I know. I know.)

DSCC RELEASE

TO: Interested Parties
FR: DSCC Chairman Robert Menendez

RE: The Arkansas Senate Race

Tonight Arkansas Democrats nominated Blanche Lincoln, a proven independent voice for her state. In this race Blanche took on powerful special interests in Washington and won. In the Senate, she fights those same fights everyday, supporting home-state farmers, strengthening programs for childhood nutrition, and bolstering rural economic development. As Chairwoman of the Agriculture Committee, Blanche has stood-up and delivered for every region of Arkansas.

A few weeks ago, Republicans nominated Congressman Boozman as their candidate. Congressman Boozman helped create this economic mess, opposes all of the efforts to turn the economy around, and would return us to the failed policies of the past. He has opposed common-sense job creation plans and continues to support the privatization of Social Security. John Boozman continues to put his political interests first in order to defend the big corporate interests that fared so well when George Bush was president.

For Democrats in Arkansas to be successful this November, we must be aggressive in framing the choice for voters. Democrat Blanche Lincoln is focused on creating jobs, farmers, and the needs of the middle class, while John Boozman has made it clear he would do even more to protect Wall Street, the oil companies and the insurance companies. Given that Arkansas cannot afford a return to the failed economic policies of the past, the stakes for November could not be higher.
