Congressman John Boozman says he's received calls from supporters, asking him to run against Senator Blanche Lincoln in November.A recent poll shows less than 40 percent of Arkansans support Senator Lincoln.

Right now state Senator Gilbert Baker leads Lincoln by 12 points.State senate minority leader Kim Hendren leads her by 8 points.Businessman Curtis Coleman and Arkansas TEA party leader Tom Cox both have a ten point lead over Lincoln.

We spoke with Senator Lincoln's office today, and they issued this statement: "The campaign has not commented on any of the GOP candidates for U.S. Senate.

Congressman Boozman would have to prove he can win his own primary before he would have the opportunity to face Senator Lincoln. None of the GOP candidates are Senator Lincoln's opponent; only one of them will have that opportunity."

Boozman says right now it's time to focus on what's important. "I think the people of Arkansas and the people of the country are rejecting the message that's coming out of Washington.

What we need to be talking about is jobs, jobs, jobs.

Creating jobs, protecting savings, protecting pension plans. Doing the things that left so much opportunity for my generation," said Boozman.

"Poor Old Blanche Lincoln has lots of competition this year after voting with Dirty Harry Reid !"
