Dozens of tea party protesters greeted unpopular Senator Blanche Lincoln (Democrat-Ark.) when she filed yesterday for re-election at the state capital.
This is footage of the first day of filing for candidacy in Arkansas. U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln was protested by dozens who were opposed to her voting record on several issues while she filed for her candidacy. About 1/2 dozen protesters/Lincoln’s staff were supporting Lincoln. Several other candidates and their supporters were present to file. I ask Lincoln if we should start over with healthcare reform, she gives a useless answer, so I ask her again. Then I ask her about Cap & Tax. When she gets questioned, Lincoln has a habit avoiding the heat by hugging buddies. The last bit of footage is from Blanche Lincoln doesn’t seem to care where she “avoid hugs” some guy named “Eddie”.
The Pulaski County Tea Party sent out a press release saying they planned to protest Sen. Blanche Lincoln when she filed for reelection on Monday. They met at the State Capitol building around noon. According the Sen. Lincoln, she planned to file around 1:30 in the capital rotunda.
