commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Blanche Lincoln is going to lose in Arkansas today…….

Yes sir…

The Senator from Arkansas is gonna lose….

This is no secret….

Daniel gets his wish……

Boozmen is going to be the next senator from that state….

Lincoln is a another example of how politicians have to run to right for GOP primaries and the left for Democratic ones…..

Halter….with Union, left and progressive support will win his parties primary only to be stuck to far out to ever win the general election….

Smile Daniel…

You get your wish……

From Daniel……

Hello Folks and Good Morning!

POLITICO has the Scoop:

Top Arkansas sources tell us the state’s political establishment expects Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) to LOSE her primary runoff tonight by at least 5 points — and perhaps 7 to 10, since insurgents have been outperforming their polls this year. That’ll make her the fifth incumbent member of Congress to get fired even before November. She’ll be the third senator (after Bennett of Utah and Specter of Pennsylvania), making the most primary-season defeats for senators since 1980, when four went down. (hat tip: Howard Mortman) Two House incumbents also have lost: Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.) and Rep. Parker Griffith (R-Ala.), who switched D. In another time, Lincoln’s seat on the Agriculture Committee would have served as an insurance policy with voters in the rural state. Now, anything about Washington is bad. For once, the media aren’t exaggerating: It’ll be an ugly November for insiders.

And this is on Politico’s Dave Cataneses Twitter:

Speaking to @DanaBashCNN, @blanche4senate says: “I think we may have underestimated the anti-incumbent mood.” #ARSEN

  1. James B, the bigger question is will Boozman (who is likely the junior United States Senator from Arkansas) be a one termer in 2016 or two termer in 2022 ?

  2. Well Halter isn’t going to be one to beat him with union and progressive and liberal backing him…..

    • I think you’re underestimating Bill Halter greatly. The only way you can win (Doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican) is IF YOU can run as an Outsider. That’s why Boozman will have troubles too.

  3. I don’t think so…

    If anybody here from down South can enlighten Daniel about what I’m talking about with unions and progressive liberals?

  4. Yeah Lincoln will lose by 4-6 pts. today I think.

    As for Halter’s chances in the general, they are better than Lincoln’s–but I still think Boozman will wind up the next Sen. from AR.

  6. Scott,

    I agree.

    Please can you help me enlighten james that running as an OUTSIDER in this Cycle carries more weight that anything else.

    Lincoln would have been TOAST if she would win tonight because she is THE FACE of the Senatorial Establishment running in Washington.

    Boozman will be outspend by Halter 3 to 1. That’s my guess if he’s the Nominee.

    Why the heck did folks like Rand Paul win or Rubio leading the way. BECAUSE there’re OUTSIDERS running away from the DC Establishment.
