Pryor campaign pushes back against the latest lame ad from Super Pac

Posted By on Wed, Jun 12, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Super Pac puts out forgettable ad. Pryor campaign says we don't need no stinking outsiders. Rinse, lather, repeat.

The latest ad out today from Senate Conservatives Action is more or less a re-hash of their first ad. Various conservative activists say the words "liberal" and "Obama" a bunch, and sadly tell the camera that "Mark Pryor left us" (though surely no one in this crew would have supported him in the first place). They use basically the same activists saying basically the same stuff and even use the exact same snippet at least once. I guess $320,000 doesn't go as far as it used to.

So I wasn't going to bother mentioning it, but was kind of interested in the push back from Pryor's rapid-response team, which fired off this fact sheet. It makes the obvious point that Pryor is a run-of-the-mill moderate in the Senate, not a liberal, but what struck me is the full-throated defense of Pryor's vote for the Affordable Care Act.

I do give Senate Conservatives Action credit for avoiding the fatal flaw of telling Arkansans that there's something wrong with talking about football and meat.
