LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Does the Democratic Party have its own version of the Tea Party in the Progressive movement? In a bizaaro-world version of Rand Paul’s victory in Kentucky or Bob Bennett’s Tea Party inspired loss, Progressives have been gathering momentum around Progressive candidate Bill Halter and against moderate incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln. Despite support from President Obama and former President Bill Clinton, Halter forced a runoff in the primary.
There was no verified Blanche Lincoln Twitter account at the time of this post.
