Tuesday night we accomplished the incredible. Bill Halter, the Lieutenant Governor from Arkansas, held incumbent U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln to well under 50% of the vote. With most of the votes counted, Blanche Lincoln finished with 44.5% and we had 42.5%. Clearly, Arkansans don't think Washington is working for them, and they aim to put someone in the Senate who will never forget who they work for - the people.
The Arkansas Senate primary now goes to a runoff, to be decided in less than three weeks on Tuesday June 8th. The latest poll (taken by DFA right after the election) has Bill Halter winning the runoff 48% to 46%.1 And Arkansas Election Line now rates this race as Lean Halter.2
We need your help to win. Blanche Lincoln and her corporate backers have and will spend millions, trying to buy this Senate seat instead of letting the people decide for themselves. Bill Halter is standing up for working families, and holding Wall Street accountable. He's their enemy #1.
If we're going to win on June 8th, we need you to get involved.
