BROWN WIN: “A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME”
SPRINGDALE, Arkansas — “It’s a sign of things to come,” says former State Senator Jim Holt, in reference to Republican Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts’ special election yesterday. Holt, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the US Senate seat currently held by Blanche Lincoln, says that credit should be given to the grassroots movements that have sprung up across the nation. “The TEA Parties and other groups may continue to be ignored by the left — including those in left-wing media — but there is no ignoring the results of yesterday’s election. They have demonstrated that they are the elephant in the room. They rallied together to send a message to Washington D.C., and they succeeded,” said Holt.
Holt stressed the need for the momentum to continue. “This drive must be maintained, and I have no doubt that it will,” he said. “But not just through this coming November, nor just through 2012, but as long as it takes to deal with a government that so arrogantly ignores the voice of the People and our Constitution.” Holt added.
“One year ago today, Barack Obama was sworn into office, and the People have now had a chance to ‘weigh in’ on his socialist agenda,” Holt continued. “We invite others who desire a return to a truly representative and constitutionally-limited government to join this fight — join a local grassroots group, and join our campaign’s drive to unseat Senator Blanche Lincoln and the liberal agenda.”
