Why I Am Voting For Jim Holt

In 2004, I supported Jim Holt in his run against US Senator Blanche Lincoln. Despite being outspent by a tremendous amount and a state wide media that was hostile to him, Holt made the race closer than any incumbent is ever comfortable with. Why? Because Jim Holt stands for the same core values that a majority of Arkansans stand for. Though he lost, his message got out. The people who had an opportunity to meet him found they were in agreement with him.

I found him to be an engaging person that understands the fears and needs every family faces. Raising their children while schools teach material they find objectable, working extra jobs just to afford the taxes imposed upon them, and defending the sanctity of life and marriage are important to Jim. I discovered that he is not, by any means, the extemist the media portrays him to be. He is a strong Christian, a veteran that dearly loves his country, and a father that provides and impeccable example for his children.

Jim Holt has my vote for Lt. Governor of Arkansas. How will you vote?

Below are a number of reasons that I will be voting for him beyond what I have already stated. The information gathered is from a friend that compiled this data. It can all be verified.
