Lincoln Loses To Boozman In Arkansas

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Democrats, Elections, Republicans

This is one seat that the Dems probably won’t get back any time soon.

From LA Times:

Lincoln, who reluctantly voted for Obama’s healthcare insurance overhaul, carried the flag for Democrats but often disagreed with her more liberal colleagues. For example, she was one of the few Democrats to vote for the Bush administration tax cuts.

As a crucial vote in the Senate, she bargained for perks for her state before voting with the Democratic majority. She was disliked by some liberals and during the primary was targeted by unions, but she narrowly defeated Lt. Gov. Bill Halter in a June runoff.

This gives the Republicans a +3 for the night so far in the Senate.
