Halter's Campaign Still Owes $736,000 in Loans

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter's campaign still owes him more than $736,000 in loans he made to his effort to gain the state's #2 elective spot last year.  That's according to a campaign finance report filed yesterday.

Another such report shows that Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has paid off his remaining campaign debts.

Halter's campaign started the second quarter more than $1 million in debt.  Halter defeated former Republican state senator Jim Holt of Springdale to become lieutenant governor.

McDaniel reported paying off $225,699 in debts left over from his primary and runoff campaigns.  McDaniel raised about $140,000 at an April event that featured several former attorneys general, including Governor Mike Beebe and former Governor Jim Guy Tucker.
