Pryor starts campaign year with $4.2 million

Posted By on Mon, Jan 13, 2014 at 12:42 PM

Sen. Mark Pryor raised $1.1 million for his re-election campaign in the fourth quarter of 2013, which put his total for the year at $5.3 million. His campaign said he started the 2014 with $4.2 million in the bank.

Republican Rep. Tom Cotton, who's challenging Pryor, hasn't filed a year-end report yet. He raised about $1 million in the third quarter of 2013 and had $1.8 million on hand.

Again: More money will be available from multiple sources on both sides of this pivotal election to fill all available TV time until Armageddon.

Also: The Republican talking points are that Pryor spent more than he took in in the fourth quarter and that Blanche Lincoln had more money at this point in her unsuccessful re-election campaign. The operative point remains that there'll be no shortage of money in this campaign and, as even the Republican talking points make clear, money alone isn't determinative. Remember that Republican Asa Hutchinson is WAY behind Democrat Mike Ross in governor's race.

SPEAKING OF TOM COTTON: Peter Urban of Stephens Media reports here on a taxpayer-financed Cotton office mailing that looks suspiciously like campaign material. It's attempting to cover Cotton on his opposition to farm legislation backed by virtually all major agricultural interests in the state.
