Statement from U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor's office:

Today, my wife Jill and I, have filed for divorce. This was a mutual decision between the two of us. This is a private matter for our family and during this painful time Jill and I would appreciate privacy, understanding, and your prayers, especially for our children.

The suit was filed with Jill Pryor as plaintiff. It says she is entitled to a divorce under Arkansas Code 9-12-301(b)(3)(C). This is commonly known as the general indignities section of the law. They married July 4, 1992 and separated in July, the filing said.

The couple has two children, Adams, 18, and Porter, 17. The complaint says the parties have reached an agreement on debt obligations of the marriage and division of real and personal property. It asks for joint legal custody of the minor child, with plaintiff as primary physical custodian subject to visitation for the defendant and for the plaintiff's attorney fees and costs.

The case was filed by attorney Patty W. Lueken for Jill Pryor. It was assigned to Judge Richard Moore. If there are no issues in dispute, an uncontested divorce could be granted as speedily as 30 days after the filing.

UPDATE: Pryor aide Michael Teague answered the political question. Pryor's change in personal life won't affect political plans. "He's 100 percent committed to run for the United States senate in two years. We've just been fund-raising," Teague said. He declined further comment.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
