AR Senate: Coleman vs Lincoln 2010
Several have asked me recently, who can we get to run against Lincoln in ’10. Yesterday I found the website for Mr. Curtis Coleman’s exploratory committee for a run against Blanche. Coleman graduated in 1966 from Conway High School and is currently CEO of Safe Foods. According to the calender on his website, he plans to officially launch his campaign in Little Rock on June 16. He also has a campaign launch party set for June 25 at Ward, AR that I plan on attending. If you’re wondering whether or not Coleman is a true conservative, visit his website and I believe the answer will be clear.
Mr. Coleman has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which Senator Lincoln has refused to sign. Senator Lincoln has a 0% rating by Americans for Tax Reform for her votes in the 110th Congress.
Coleman believes the 2nd Amendment protects a fundamental right of the American people to keep and bear arms.
“Whether Arkansans choose to have guns for sport or because they hunt, or if they choose to bear arms for the protection of their persons, families, or property, this constitutional right must never be abridged.”
Unlike Lincoln, Coleman opposes the use of our tax dollars to fund abortion here or abroad. Further, he would support a Constitutional amendment to protect the lives of unborn children.
“Until we can outlaw the heinous act of killing unborn children, we must guarantee a woman’s right to know, ensuring (a)her consent to an abortion is an informed one, (b) mandating that parents be informed and provide consent before the serious surgical procedure of an abortion can be performed on a minor, and (c) requiring doctors to inform the mother that the unborn child will feel pain.”
Furthermore, I added Mr. Coleman as a friend on Facebook and asked specifically if he would pledge to support our Mission Statement at Arkansas Tea Party, Inc. He promptly replied with the following:
John, Thank you for your encouraging note. I fully support the mission statement of the Arkansas Tea Party. I’ll be adding more of my position and policy statements to my website over the next few weeks. Please check those as you have opportunity.
Please let me know how I can be of service to you. I look forward to making your acquaintance.
He may be just who conservatives have been waiting for in Arkansas. Like I said, I plan on attending his campaign launch party on the 25th and learning more.
