    Halter wins the primary.  Will the establishment back him?  Will we see Bill campaign for him?  Will the President?  How about the DSCC?  That's what to watch for.  If none of these things happen, the campaign falls to all of us to do.

    •  He will get the support (6+ / 0-)

      at that point, it is a Dem. vs. Rep race.  Halter will need to ensure that he continues to raise money -- that will be the big issue.  If he can't do that, the rest of the support won't matter.

      It should be noted that Democrats aren't having problems with the other statewide races.  In particular, Mike Beebe will be easily re-elected governor of Arkansas.  It is only the Senate race that is up for grabs
