Liberal Activitist Groups Enter Arkansas Senate Race by Gregory Hilton

I do not interfere with the opposition when they are in the process of destroying themselves, but conservative Republicans owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to liberal activist groups Moveon.org, Progressive Change, Daily Kos and Democracy for America. They are behind liberal Lt. Gov. Bill Halter’s (D-AR) primary challenge to moderate Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR). He announced his candidacy on March 1st and had raised over $800,000 the next day from these organizations!
TV ads are already on the air and all of this money is being used to attack Senator Lincoln. It is a dream come true for the Republican Party and the conservative agenda. This Senate seat will soon be in GOP hands. If Halter does upset Lincoln in the primary, he would be an even easier target in November. President Obama’s approval in the poll is 37%, versus 61% disapproval.
The past month was a good one for Senator Lincoln. She picked up 7 points and was making the race more competitive. Thanks to the national liberal organizations, an avalanche of negative attack ads are beginning and Republicans don’t have to pay for them. This is the change we can believe in.
