Tom Cotton ad features 'roots,' new wife; Mark Pryor has God and the minimum wage

Tom Cotton's ads featuring home and family (here including his new wife Anna) are the best things he does. The less said about his voting record the better. His campaign says the Republican Senate candidate's ad is running in the Fort Smith market.

Speaking of the race for U.S. Senate: Mark Pryor gets a nod in the New York Times for playing the God card in his advertising at the outset of the campaign.

And Senator Mark Pryor, a Democrat from Arkansas — where 57 percent of those who voted in the 2010 Senate race were white evangelical or born-again Christians — ran an ad that opens with him holding the Bible as he says, “I’m not ashamed to say that I believe in God, and I believe in his word.”

Pryor is also pushing more recently his support for an increase in the state minimum wage to $8.50 an hour over two years. Cotton has declined to take a position on the issue.
