Blanche Lincoln may be ahead in the polls against Democratic primary competitor Bill Halter going into tonight's election, but things aren't looking good with stories like these floating around. From Politico:
Webb Ross, 81, interrupted Lincoln during a question-and-answer session with reporters outside the Little Rock church where she voted with her family.

As Lincoln described herself as a centrist – “right there in the middle, a moderate, in the United States Senate” – Ross interjected: “That’s just not true.”

“You have not been in the middle,” he said. “You have voted left with your party all of the time. I’m sorry, but that is not a true statement."
