Democrat's ad embraces cap-and-trade opposition

Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) doesn’t seem to be sweating the criticism she's gotten from green groups like the Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters over her opposition to climate legislation.

Her first television ad since Arkansas Lt. Gov. Bill Halter announced he would challenge Lincoln in the primary promotes her opposition to cap and trade legislation, among other Democratic initiatives. The cap and trade bill would have raised energy costs on Arkansans, Lincoln says in the ad.
