The NRA has Mark Pryor's back; Bloomberg group keeps up pressure

Posted By on Fri, Jun 14, 2013 at 8:56 AM

The National Rifle Association will run 60-second radio ads over the next two weeks defending Sen. Mark Pryor against the ads from New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg criticizing Pryor for being weak on gun control.

I'd say the NRA has already gotten pretty good bang for these radio bucks. My wild prediction is that they won't be so friendly when Pryor's running against Tom Cotton.

*UPDATE: Meanwhile, Bloomberg's group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is holding a rally today at Allsop Park, featuring survivors of gun violence.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
