Bill Halter was in Lawrence County on Thursday while doing some campaigning in the Northeast Arkansas area and shared some of his plans and visions for the state of Arkansas with The TD.

Halter, who is a fourth generation Arkansan, said he was the product of a typical Arkansas family. His father was a small businessman and his mother was a nurse. He has a brother and a sister, who have made him an uncle seven times.

Now, he and his wife, Shanti, are adding to the family, as well. They are expecting their first child, a girl, on Nov. 6, the day before the election.

Halter is a graduate of Catholic High School, where he played football. He won several scholarships to attend Stanford University for his undergraduate degree and then received a Rhodes Scholarship to study economics at Oxford.

His career has been many faceted and includes time in the government and private sector.

He served as the chief economist for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, prior to working in the Office of Management and Budget at the White House under the Clinton administration.
