Bill Halter Arkansas Runoff: Democratic Candidate Hopes For Better Results In Every County

(AP) - Lt. Gov. Bill Halter says he wants to do better in every county in Tuesday's runoff election.

Halter is trying to unseat incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln for the Democratic nomination for Senate.

After voting early Tuesday, Halter stressed the importance of getting his supporters to the polls in what he said he expects to be a close race.

Halter says he has volunteers stationed at the 40-plus polling places in Garland County that were open for the May primary. Lincoln edged Halter in that vote.

Only two polling places are open Tuesday in Garland County and Halter says he wants to make sure his supporters can vote.
