Walton Gives $75K to Lottery Foes

Updated: Apr 15

This state lottery debate may get interesting yet—Jim Walton of the Wal-Mart and Arvest Bank empires has ponied up $75,000 to the Arkansas Family Council to combat the lottery initiative pushed by Lt. Gov. Bill Halter.

Family Council honcho says the funds were unexpected, but will likely go toward radio and newspaper advertising, the Arkansas News Bureau’s John Lyon reports.

Update: Halter has a previously scheduled news conference about the lottery at 10 a.m. at the State Capitol.
