Pat Hays and Mark Pryor go the feel-good route; Pryor even works in Obamacare plug

Posted By on Wed, Aug 20, 2014 at 12:28 PM


Well, he's not a millionaire banker using his kids and an old Volvo to play like he's a poor boy, but Democrat Patrick Henry Hays, the 2nd District congressional candidate and former North Little Rock mayor, has some pretty good TV of his own out in his race against Republican J. French Hill. 

Then there's Sen. Mark Pryor, joned by his dad David Pryor, the former senator, talking about Mark's fight against cancer and his support for legislation that prevented insurance companies from refusing coverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions. (That would be, yes, Obamacare.)

Pryor ad is getting huge national attention from the commentariat.
