Dear MoveOn member,
With Bill Halter rising in the polls and attracting an outpouring of grassroots support, Senator Blanche Lincoln is now resorting to vicious personal attacks.
She just sent a mailing to voters across Arkansas implying that Halter is addicted to prescription drugs, and has falsely accused him of outsourcing jobs to India.1
These charges are absurd, and a pathetic attempt by Sen. Lincoln to distract voters from her own performance in Washington. As a columnist for the Arkansas News put it: "It's Blanche, actually, who has a public record that is obliging to multi-national corporations and drug companies."2
But Lincoln's got millions of dollars to put behind these attacks, and worse yet, there are now reports that "corporate interests are talking among themselves about producing independent attack ads on Halter."3
So Bill Halter needs the resources to fight back. There are only 12 hours left until the big fundraising deadline, and we're within reach of raising $500,000 for his campaign in the final week. It'll just take another 3 donations from folks in Inwood. Can you chip in $5?
Thanks for all you do.
