The 'bridge builder' open line

ON CAPITOL VIEW: Mark Pryor.
  • ON CAPITOL VIEW: Mark Pryor.

The Sunday line is open. Mark Pryor was on Capitol View on KARK/16 this morning. A snippet of his appearance here, in which he talks about being a "bridge builder," somebody who'll cross party lines on votes. 

Here's the thing. Mark Pryor is telling the truth. He HAS voted against Democratic Party leadership on occasion. His opponent, Tom Cotton? He defies Republican Party leadership only to bow to Club for Growth extremist leadership. 

Does moderation appeal to Arkansas voters? That may be the election year's big question?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
