  • SEN. MARK PRYOR: Campaign comes out swinging against Tom Cotton.
U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor's campaign responds to the expected news of Republican Tom Cotton's plans to oppose Pryor in 2014:

Mark Pryor for U.S. Senate campaign manager Jeff Weaver released the following statement Wednesday about Tom Cotton's anticipated run for the U.S. Senate after just 209 days in Congress.

"In seven short months, Tom Cotton's reckless and irresponsible voting record has alienated Arkansas farmers, seniors, students, women, parents and the business community by voting against such measures as the Farm Bill, Student loans, the Violence Against Women Act, and trying to cut Social Security and Medicare.

"Instead of putting Arkansas first, he has put his own political career ahead of the people of Arkansas and sided with Washington insiders and special interests. When the people of our state review Tom Cotton's record, they won't like what they see."
