Democratic Lt. Governor Nominee Has Lent Campaign $1.17 Million

AUGUST 1, 2006 - Posted at 7:45 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former Clinton administration official Bill Halter has lent more than $1.17 million of his own money to his Democratic bid for lieutenant governor.  That's according to campaign finance reports filed yesterday.

A report filed with the secretary of state's office showed that Halter, who dropped out of the governor's race earlier this year to run for lieutenant governor, lent his campaign $270,000 in June.  Halter had reported previously lending his campaign $900,900.

Yesterday was the deadline for candidates who faced a primary runoff June 13 to file campaign finance reports with the state.  Halter defeated state Senator Tim Wooldridge of Paragould in a runoff to win the Democratic nomination and faces state Republican state Senator Jim Holt of Springdale in the general election November 7.  Holt won the Republican nomination without a runoff in the May 23 primary.
