Re: “Halter's magic carpet ride over

I'm confused by all this talk about Garland county. Let me begin by stating that I think it was a poor decision to open only two polling locations. They should have opened them all. But, let's look at the facts here. According to the Secrtary of State's website, Halter only won Garland county by 474 votes on May 18. So, even if every single Halter voter showed up again AND every single DC Morrison voter in Garland county (1,882) showed up again AND decided to vote for Halter it wouldn't change the outcome of this race.

Stop, just stop. Making this issue sound like it would have mattered is less than productive.

Re: “Blanche Lincoln wins!

I am proud tonight that Arkansas told a bunch of outsiders that they couldn't buy or predict an election here. DC media, please insert foot now; followed by most of Arkansas media. Regardless of what anybody says about who is funding who in this campaign, Lincoln was definitely outspent in this runoff. The majority of that money did not come from Arkansas. I believe we can all agree to that. Nobody, not even this blog, thought that Lincoln had any chance to pull this out. I like that. It shows that we as Arkansans are independent and not as easily categorized by those that seek to do so.

I think it's sad that some of the commenters say that they simply will not vote in November. I believe voting is a duty that we should never take for granted. I'll cast mine for the Democrat.
