Senator Blanche Lincoln (D- Arkansas -Walmart) officially has a primary battle for her seat in the United States Senate. Everyone expected that the Republicans would pour cash into the Fall battle, but a primary is a whole different department. From The Associated Press:
Democratic U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, a moderate already considered one of the Senate's most vulnerable members, is facing another roadblock in her bid for a third term: a challenge from the left side of her own party. Arkansas Lt. Gov. Bill Halter announced Monday that he's seeking the Democratic nomination for Lincoln's seat, becoming the first in the party to formally challenge Lincoln and underscoring a schism in an election year shaping up to be difficult for the party in power. "Washington is broken. It's working for the special interests, not Arkansas families," Halter said in a statement. Eight Republicans already have announced interest in the Senate seat as Lincoln's popularity wanes in the GOP-leaning state. She has been under has been under pressure in Washington to support President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
