The humpday open line

*ARKANSAS BUSINESS APOLOGIZES FOR PUBLISHING CONCEALED CARRY LIST: Score one for the gun nuts. They sufficiently harassed Arkansas Business editor Gwen Moritz, who published a link to one of the last available version of the list of registered concealed carry permit holders on Monday, into offering a long mea culpa.

*MO MONEY FOR COTTON: U.S. Speaker John Boehner is fundraising for Rep. Tom Cotton tonight in D.C., Roll Call reports. Gotta build up that war chest to take on Pryor.

*LIVE FROM THE INSURANCE EXCHANGE HEARING: A day after the game-changing news that the federal government is willing to put federal Medicaid dollars into the health exchange, some guy from FreedomWorks says that's just another sign we should hold out for a better deal. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

Speaking of Gwen Moritz, Tom Cotton

  • Pryor-Cotton campaign: first-quarter fundraising and the conventional wisdom

    April 15, 2014
    The Pryor-Cotton campaign beat goes on (and on): The first-quarter fundraising figures are in (of course, outside money will swamp whatever the candidates spend). Meanwhile, a Washington Post pundit today declares Pryor's candidacy alive and well, adding to the growing conventional wisdom that Pryor isn't doomed to Blanche Lincoln's fate. Plus, the latest ad from the Cotton campaign. /more/
  • Is Mark Pryor winning in the campaign for Senate against Tom Cotton?

    April 14, 2014
    With polls showing Pryor with a small lead, some are accusing the Cotton campaign of suggesting the Lincoln-Douglas debates because they're worried they're losing. /more/
  • Outside money pouring in to the Pryor-Cotton race

    April 14, 2014
    More than $2 million has already been spent in TV advertising on the race for Senate in Arkansas between incumbent Mark Pryor and challenger Rep. Tom Cotton. The overwhelming majority of that has come from outside groups, the Washington Post's Reid Wilson reports. Americans for Prosperity alone has spent at least $1.4 million on advertising in the race. /more/
  • Pryor campaign responds to Cotton's debate proposal

    April 13, 2014
    The Pryor campaign responds to Cotton's debate proposal: "Mark looks forward to debating Congressman Cotton at the appropriate time and in a format where voters statewide can finally hear Mr. Cotton's explanation for recklessly voting to turn Medicare over to insurance companies, cut benefits and raise the age to 70 for Social Security and Medicare." /more/
  • Tom Cotton proposes series of five debates with Mark Pryor

    April 13, 2014
    Rep. Tom Cotton is having a press conference shortly to propose a series of of five one-on debates with Sen. Mark Pryor. I'll update this post shortly with details. Cotton is proposing what he calls "Lincoln-Douglas"-style debates. There would be no moderators or panelists — just opening and closing statements, candidate-to-candidate questions, answers and rebuttals. /more/
  • The Where We Are with Health Care Expansion Edition

    April 11, 2014
    The state of Arkansas appealing a federal judge’s ruling striking down the 12-week abortion ban the legislature passed in 2012, the latest in the race for U.S. Senate between Tom Cotton and Mark Pryor, the latest silliness in the judicial eligibility controversy and where we are with health care expansion in Arkansas and nationally — all covered on this week's edition of the Week in Review Podcast. /more/
  • Senate ad highlights Obamacare success story

    April 10, 2014
    The ad above has hit the airwaves in Alaska, where Sen. Mark Begich faces a tough re-election campaign in Alaska. It's well done. Millions of people have gained coverage because of the Affordable Care Act. The ad tells the story of one: Lisa Keller of Anchorage, a breast cancer survivor who was denied health insurance because of her pre-existing condition. "I now have health insurance again," Keller says, "because of Mark Begich." /more/
  • Mark Pryor hammers Tom Cotton over budget votes

    April 10, 2014
    On the one hand, it's easy to poke fun at the epic, novel-length press releases that Sen. Mark Pryor's camp sends out detailing all of the stuff that Rep. Tom Cotton votes against, or votes to cut. On the other hand, Cotton's preferred policies really do amount to a whole lot pain, and cataloging all that is a big endeavor. Today Cotton voted for both the Ryan budget and the even more draconian Republican Study Committee budget. That means voucherizing Medicare, benefit cuts for seniors, cuts for preventative care, and more. /more/
  • Another poll shows Mark Pryor leading Tom Cotton

    April 10, 2014
    For the second time this week, a poll has found Sen. Mark Pryor leading over challenger Rep. Tom Cotton in a tight race. A non-partisan live-caller poll released this morning by Opinion Research Associates showed Pryor up 48-38. This comes on the heels of a Talk Business poll showing Pryor leading Cotton 45.5 percent to 42.5 percent, a statistical dead heat. /more/
  • Court says money is speech

  • Internet troll Andrew "weev" Auernheimer out of jail after Appeals Court rules he should've been tried in home state of Arkansas

    Fayetteville's Andrew Aurenheimer, better known as internet troll and "hacker" weev, is set to be released from federal prison after a federal appeals court reversed and vacated his conviction and sentence. Aurenheimer was convicted in 2012 of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and sentenced to a 41-month prison term for what the government called "unauthorized access" of AT&T's servers in 2010. In reality, Aurenheimer merely exposed an AT&T security flaw.
