Dem. Lincoln Heads to Runoff

In Arkansas, neither Sen. Blanche Lincoln nor Lt. Gov. Bill Halter mustered 50 percent of their party's nomination and will have to face each other in a special runoff election June 8, reports the Associated Press. The tight fight is a hallmark of the nation's anti-incumbent sentiment. Lincoln, the incumbent, lost favor with her Democratic base when she flip-flopped on health care and for her seemingly close relations with corporations.
