Campaigning Against Lincoln

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has this out now: 

Lincoln To Cast 60th Vote For Obama’s $2.5 Trillion Government Health Care Takeover . . .

“Blanche Lincoln’s vote tonight is unequivocally a vote in favor of President Obama’s $2.5 trillion government-run health care plan.

“Obviously the pressure from the left wing of her party finally got to Blanche Lincoln.  She not only reversed her previous statements that a government-run plan was too costly, but she completely ignored the increasing unemployment rate in her state and the growing national deficit when she announced that she will cast the 60th vote in favor of President Obama’s costly health care plan tonight.

“There’s no doubt that this vote will be a critical issue for Senator Lincoln as she embarks on her uphill re-election bid, and the people of Arkansas will have an opportunity to hold her accountable when they cast their ballots next November.”
