Blanche Lincoln finally hit TV after the normal 10 p.m. news window, her appearance begun by an enthusiastic introduction by Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, who said Lincoln would be the “comeback kid.” He also emphasized hat she led the ticket, despite having been “written off” by national media.

Lincoln called for an end to negative advertising. If Halter removes his, she will, too, she said. And she said outside groups should “go home.” Not likely.
