Republican Rep. Tom Cotton is pushing back against an offensive attack from his own partys Senate campaign committee against the Democratic senator he is challenging in Arkansas.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Wednesday criticized Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) for past statements on the Bible after the lawmaker aired a new ad in which he talks about his religious beliefs and calls the Bible his compass. Continue Reading
So is the Bible Mark Pryors compass, providing the comfort and guidance to do whats best for Arkansas? Or is it really not a good rule book for political issues and decisions made in the Senate? Guess it depends on which Mark Pryor that you ask, NRSC Director Brad Dayspring wrote in a blog post.
A campaign manager for Cotton, who is challenging Pryor for his Senate seat in next years election, called the NRSC comments bizarre and offensive.
We should all agree that America is better off when all our public officials in both parties have the humility to seek guidance from God, campaign spokesman David Ray told CNN.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee also blasted the NRSC.
The NRSC has crossed the line this week with attacks on the religious faith of Democrats. The most recent is a despicable attack on Mark Pryor. The NRSC should immediately pull down their attack and apologize to Senator Pryor and other people of faith who dont deserve to have their religious beliefs attacked by political operatives in Washington, D.C. This attack was out of bounds, Executive Director Guy Cecil said in a statement.
Dayspring did not respond to CNNs request for comment.
Differences in Bible interpretation are fine on FR, but it’s a poor avenue of attack in politics.
We should attack democrats on everything. I’m tired of these “let’s take the high road” republicans. The DNSC or the DNCC has never, ever apologized for ANY ads it has produced.
Remember “if you elect republicans, more churches will burn” ads?? Or the pick-up truck and the chains ad in Texas.
Democrats give no quarter in elections. We need to do the same. Pryor says he wants forgiveness for his Obamacare vote. What he really wants is six more years of power.
So is invoking God and the bible as an expedient attempt at getting re-elected.
You obviously do have to tread carefully when you might end up looking as if you’re attacking someone’s faith, especially in Arkansas.
What Cotton should be pointing out is that Obamacare is an ABORTION TOOL, and Pryor voted for it.
Has McCain apologized for this yet?
Another Squish. Say good-bye to his chances.
