Bill Halter: Looking back and forward

Lt. Gov. Bill Halter has finally begun sitting down for interviews about his Democratic primary loss to Sen. Blanche Lincoln and what the future holds after he leaves office in early 2011. Today, he met with Gerard Matthews for an extensive chat. He says he was disappointed, though not surprised, by negativity in his race. He also didn't seem as surprised as some pundits were by his defeat. He said he knew it would be close. He has no immediate political or employment plans after his term ends, but says he intends to stay rooted in Arkansas. And he still takes issue with some of the analysis on how voters split.

The full Q&A is now posted on the Arkansas Reporter section of our website.

  • 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.
