Tom Cotton accuses Sen. Mark Pryor of “toeing the line” for President Obama and the Democratic Party, claiming Pryor voted with them 90 percent of the time. But the party unity figure is wrong (it’s actually 80 percent), and the presidential support figure, although accurate, shows Pryor voted against Obama more than any other Senate Democrat.
Cotton goes on to say in the ad that he’ll “stand up to President Obama and my own party when I have to.” We cannot predict the future, but when it came to toeing the party line in the House, Cotton’s voting was actually more reliably Republican than Pryor’s was reliably Democratic. According to CQ Weekly, Cotton voted in accordance with his party 97 percent of the time last year.
Last year, Pryor opposed the president on gun regulations, immigration issues, loosening restrictions of transfers from Gitmo and one judicial nominee.
What the article doesn't delve into, but still should be noted, is that the presidential support score cited in Cotton's ad is based on an arbitrary fraction of the total votes cast by a Senator.
