BFD. She out-Libbed her ultra-Liberal opponent. She’s toast come November.

Good deal. Her opponent would be able to claim he’s more conservative and deny responsibility. Lincoln will have to run on her record.

That is what I was thinking. I would rather Boozman run against her record than Halter.

Halter was backed very strongly by the unions. They spent a substantial amount of money for him AND STILL LOST !!

Tells you how people tend to view unions and their unending demand for increased pensions nowadays.

With MoveOn.org and UNIONS supporting him. They have poured millions (& bus loads of people) in to this race for him. So, we can say 'THEY' were defeated tonight moreso than Halter.

She votes 81% liberal. I wouldn't waste my time making such a fine distinction, that she is one of the best Democrats.

She sucks, just like the rest of them.

Big defeat for the thug unions now, bigger defeat for the Dims in Nov. Good weak candidate for the Repubs to run against.

In September 2009, Lincoln pledged to filibuster any legislation containing a Public health insurance option in the Affordable Health Care for America Act. She also spoke out in opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act, garnering her the praise of Americans for Tax Reform.

Lincoln opposes bringing Guantanamo Bay prisoners to the United States for trial

I'd trade her for Goober Graham in a heartbeat.

She must use the same one Hillary did when she was in Arkansas. /s

Remember, Blanche doesn't live in Arkansas. She lives in Virginia where her husband has a medical practice.

Blanche Lincoln, The Senator From Virginia

Blanche Lincoln. (It’s in her husband’s name.) And guess where it’s located. Helena? Nope. It’s located in Arlington, Virginia.

Blanche Lincoln owns a home worth over 2 million bucks IN VIRGINIA.

According to Fox, Bubba is back! He campaigned for Blanche. And when asked about Barry’s endorsement, she didn’t act too thrilled.

Unions dropped $6 million in support of Halter. Think they’ll come up with millions more to support Lincoln?

Blanche: “I’ve always depended upon the kindness of strangers..”

What a crock. She depends on millionaires to fund her campaign. The same ones who spent nights in the Lincoln bedroom when Clinton was President.

It would be hard to separate Blanche and the Clintons. They are tied at the hip. They all have the same mailing list where they BEG FOR MONEY, literally. If you don't give the maximum allowed you are OFF their party list. Of course, I've never been on the list in the first place, THANK GOD!

Even though she may or may not be the easier foe for Boozman, the fact that she survived says that the opposition is weaker than expected.

She won a narrow primary victory. I believe this is good news for conservatives. She is a known D.C. democrat commodity and these days, that ain't a popular thing to be.

The unions are trying very hard to have the influence with Democrats that the Tea Parties are having with Republicans. My guess is they’re going to get even more insistent on liberal candidates and pony up millions more on libs like Halter. Would be a dream come true if they did.
