Senator Baker is seeking the GOP Nomination to run against incumbent Democrat Blanche Lincoln. Lincoln, who has served in the Senate since 1998, has a less than exemplary record when it comes to defending the taxpayer. ATR’s lifetime rating for Senator Blanche Lincoln is a porous 15%; and in her few years in the House of Representatives she never had a higher than 40% rating. Baker is one of a number of pledge signers in the race that includes Curtis Coleman, Tom Cox and Conrad Reynolds.
By signing the pledge, Baker has let the taxpayers of Arkansas know that he understands their interests, while Lincoln has not signed. ATR urges Senator Lincoln and all candidates for federal office to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
