Pryor scoring with lobbyists this year

Posted By on Tue, Jul 9, 2013 at 11:34 AM

Paul Barton with the Gannett Washington Bureau reports that U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor ranks No. 3 so far this year in campaign contributions from lobbyists, with more than $85,000. His committee assignments, such as Appropriations, makes Pryor a popular man in that community.

That $85,000 is about 3 percent of $2.8 million raised in 2013. By way of comparison, the anti-tax Club for Growth, which will back U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton with almost unlimited amounts if he opposes Pryor, has already spent at least $150,000 alone for TV ads beating up on Pryor.
