The SEIU has been a big part of Big Labor’s big push against Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) in the Arkansas Senate Democratic primary race. With the runoff days away, the group has released a final ad attacking Lincoln’s record and supporting her opponent, Bill Halter.
The ad says Lincoln’s votes in the current economic climate have helped “Wall Street, and insurance companies - and hurt us.”
Lincoln faces Halter in the June 8 runoff. The TPM Poll Average for this race shows Halter leading Lincoln 47.3%-44.7%.
