Republican Lieutenant Governor Hopeful Pulls "Unfair" Radio Ads

MAY 17, 2006 - Posted at 7:56 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Republical lieutenant governor candidate Jim Holt says it was "classy" of opponent Chuck Banks to pull radio ads that Banks said were unfair to Holt.

Banks said yesterday he pulled the ad on Friday and apologized to Holt for the commercial.  The ad aired in northwest and central Arkansas last week.  It said Holt has a bad habit of making promises and then doing just the opposite, usually at taxpayers' expense.

The commercial said Holt voted for taxes to fund pre-kindergarten programs even though the senator from Springdale said he opposes them.  It also cites Holt missing a committee meeting where $186,000 in funding for Senate office renovation was approved.

Holt said he doesn't hold it against Banks, who is trying to win an election just as Holt is.
