Someone just sent me the following press release on Holt declaring for Lt. Governor. You may recall that Jim received nearly 70 percent of the vote in a three-way Republican primary race when he ran for U.S. Senate last year. I know Senator Holt needs all our prayers. I, myself, pray for him daily because as I said before, this race is not about Jim Holt; it is about whether a person can initiate and vote real Christian values and still survive in politics. Winning or losing that battle will determine the survival of our nation and Christian heritage. Of course, the media and opponents have and will still continue to heap every type of insult on Senator Holt because they, too, know what is at stake. I think they figured it out before the Christians. Their fear of that is driving their assaults on Senator Holt. They are afraid the people have found a leader who won't back down despite all the insults and that he just might help the people take back some control of policy in Arkansas and fulfill our motto: "The people rule." My prayer is that the PEOPLE WILL PRAY - AND ACT. If you haven't noticed, the biggest critics in the media of Jim Holt have been the editorialists with the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Almost every day their editorialists write articles promoting homosexuality - today's article endorsing the bill to make homosexuality part of civil rights which would give homosexuals special privileges. Holt is the only legislator that has taken an open, public, strong stand on this homosexual issue. No wonder they spend so much time opposing him! JIM HOLTNews Release CONTACT: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Kay Emery, Media CoordinatorMarch 12, 2005 HOLT TO RUN FOR LT. GOVERNOR LITTLE ROCK – State Sen. Jim Holt is announcing his candidacy for lieutenant governor of Arkansas. An Arkansas native, Holt served one term in the House and is serving in his second session of the Senate. “I’m so grateful for the trust the voters have placed in me in electing me to both the House and the Senate. This experience has served as a valuable training ground for the position of lieutenant governor,” Holt says. “People from all over the state, regardless of party, have encouraged me to run because they want the strongest candidates possible for governor and lieutenant governor.” Although outspent 60 to one in his U.S. Senate race against incumbent Blanche Lincoln, Holt surprised many of the state’s political pundits by receiving more than 44 percent of the vote in November – thanks to strong grassroots support. Holt promises that his campaign for lieutenant governor will not be about party politics; instead, he pledges to defend the constitutional rights that Arkansans hold dear. “This is a pivotal time in Arkansas,” Holt says. “It’s a time to remember those values that have made Arkansas such a great place to live and then build upon that foundation.”
So it looks like Asa Hutchinson vs. Winn Rockefeller for Governor on the GOP side. Mike Bebee on the Democratic side. Both Hutchinson and Rockefeller have baggage that will hurt them with voters. Rockefeller has a pro-choice record (though getting his definite opinion on anything controversial has been a challenge). Hutchinson did a terrible job enforcing the borders- though he may only have been doing what his open-borders boss wanted.Holt is a maverick that the GOP establishment hates. I would not be surprised if they drummed up some opposition for him in spite of his stellar resume for the position. He could have challenged those two for governor.
I really wanted to see Mr. Holt take a shot at the governor’s seat. The state of Arkansas is in dire need of strong leadership. I hope that Mr. Holt will take a strong look at the Delta region as he campaigns. We are slowly rotting away and falling into the river only too be scooped up by the corruption from Memphis & Tunica MS.The Delta region is on the brink of economic collapse as the legislature has seen fit to give away land, grant tax breaks and roll out the red carpet for foreign businesses to invade our region.Remember, Crowley's Ridge is not the eastern border of Arkansas.
The team of the Lt. Governor and Senator Holt in the next election would be hard to beat. They might even give Arkansas back to the people!
Deltaconservative, I figured people in East Arkansas wanted the "super projects" bond amendment that was on the ballot last November. Are you saying it's actually detrimental to our economy? By the way, as one who lives close enough to see the impact of gambling in places like Tunica, what are some specific problems that you could share with us?
Deltaconservative,He went to the Delta a fair amount in his Senate campaign. That was right into his opponents stronghold, yet he did not write it off. I feel certain that he will keep visiting after the election. I know he would be perfect for a job that involves travelling the state and connecting with people. He can explain why conservative ideas are the only ones that really work
Its A Happy day down here in the 4th I belive we will soon have some real conservatives running the state havent we had enough of thoses Texarkana Mafia RINOS
I think that this is getting a little off topic. I praise Mr. Holt for visiting the Delta as Ms. Blanche has labeled herself the "Daughter of the Delta". We support him 100% and would even vote for him if he ran for a city council seat, if we could.As far as the "Super Projects" amendment, that should be left for a separate thread. I am not much of a writer and have a tendency to ramble, but I would love to comment on the Delta's economy if someone would like to do the research and write the beginning article.Back to the topic at hand.... Mr. Holt you have our support and we plan to follow this race all the way to the end. Keep it clean, Keep it fair, leave the dirty work to us.
