Lt. Gov. Bill Halter’s campaign for a state lottery raised another $11,000 last month, bringing Arkansas that much closer to the wondrous world of scratch-off tickets and gambling addiction.
The campaign has raised over $563,000 total, with almost $70,000 cash on hand, the AP reports. (Wait, what? They’ve already dropped half a mil on this thing? What on earth for? That’s a snappy new website, but if they paid $500,000 for it, they got hosed.)
On the other side, I hear that lottery opponents reported receiving a smooth $67.50 and some coupons for half-off at Jiffy Lube.
