Should Jim Holt Get in the U.S. Senate Race?

Jason Tolbert has a poll on the matter over at his site. Feel free to drop by and cast your vote.

The way the question is phrased, the supporters of the eight other candidates are lumped together against Holt. In other words, Holt could lose the poll 60-40 and still be by far the single candidate with the most support, since supporters of all eight of the other guys are motivated to vote that Holt stay out of it.

Thanks Mark. Please vote but don't read too much into it. Internet polls are completely unscientific but fun for discussion.

I spoke with another candidate the other day who believes Holt will only pull about 10% in the primary. Although I really like this candidate, I think he is way off on how many votes Holt can pull, especially if he concentrates more on fund raising than past elections. I believe time will prove me right.

In a ten man primary, 10% may be first place, Rick.

I can't say for sure if I will be there, but I will run it up the family flag pole.

The candidate who thinks Holt will only get 10% in a state wide GOP primary is too out of touch to be in this race. His average vote in the last two three-way primaries was 62.5 percent.

Even in the general, Holt got more votes than any Republican in Arkansas for the two election cycles he was on the ticket. And let me ask you who holds the record for more votes in a general election than any living Arkansas Republican, including Huckabee? The answer is Jim Holt. If either of those two men has blown it since they were last on the ballot, its Huckabee, not Holt.

I personally welcome Mr. Holt to the race. He always brings a different point of view and is always entertaining on the campaign trail!
