Bill Halter is running for the US Senate.
He is challenging Blanche Lambert Lincoln the head of Democrats for millionaires.
His aim is to win against apparently huge odds with a plain old egalitarian populist campaign. I have been arguing for years that this is the way for Democrats to win. I sure don't think his chances are good, but, if his performance doesn't surprise the political commentators, then I will declare myself to be a fool.
