    On paper, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) should be this cycle’s most endangered incumbent.But rumors of his political death might have been premature.Eight months from Election Day, the centrist Democrat is still neck and neck with or ahead of his GOP opponent in private and partisan polls. An independent poll this week showed Pryor up 3 points and a second on Thursday put him up 10 points, despite a sour national climate and $6 million in negative ads already spent against him.Armed with a top recruit in freshman Rep. Tom Cotton, Republicans thought this was the year they would finally take...

    The Republican National Committee began running ads in 40 media markets Tuesday mostly targeting incumbent senators who supported President Barack Obama’s health care program. Billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, meanwhile, gave $2.5 million to help Democrats defend their majority in the Senate. The early action suggests Republicans see the president’s signature domestic achievement as their way to keep control of the House and perhaps win the Senate. With more than 300 days remaining before Election Day, both sides are looking to set the agenda before voters start paying attention. “Obamacare is going to be the issue in 2014,”...

    Kellyanne Conway’s group did the polling. It’s not one of the news group polls, which use a Democratic and Republican pollster together. Can’t make Pryor feel good: Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor trails his Republican challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, by seven points among likely voters in Arkansas, 48 percent to 41 percent, according to a new poll from a conservative group that says his support of the health care reform law is costing him.The survey, shared exclusively with POLITICO, was conducted Friday and Saturday for the Citizens United Political Victory Fund by Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway of the polling company, Inc./WomanTrend....
  • Poll: Tom Cotton Takes Lead in Arkansas

    Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor is trailing Republican challenger Rep. Tom Cotton in the Arkansas Senate race according to a poll released Monday. Forty-eight percent of respondents support Cotton compared to 41 percent behind the incumbent Pryor, according to the poll. The poll shows that the race has taken a turn due to Pryor’s support for Obamacare, according to Politico. The last published numbers from this marquee match-up came in the midst of October’s government shutdown and before the national focus turned to the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, which Pryor voted for. Four polls taken that month showed the race within...

    KATV TV ^ | December 4, 2013 | Elicia Dover
    KATV) Sen. Mark Pryor is out with a new TV ad offering a Biblical solution to the already heated 2014 Senate race in Arkansas. Pryor's campaign said the ad will begin airing on Wednesday. In the 30 second ad, Pryor speaks directly to the camera about his faith in the Bible. The ad is a substantial purchase for the campaign and will run statewide. "I'm not ashamed to say that I believe in God, and I believe in His word. The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers. Only God does. And neither political party is always right,"...

    When U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, R (at right) announces his candidacy for Senate at a barbecue this evening, he will be doing so as an early frontrunner in a 2014 race that could ultimately determine which party controls the U.S. Senate.
  • Schadenfreude, wingnuts: Anti-gun purge of the Democratic Party?

    Mayors Against Illegal guns — a group of nearly 1,000 mayors, the vast majority of whom are Democrats — lacks any obvious Republican target to lash out at over last week’s gun control defeat in the Senate. So the group is now mulling over how to express its rage, and the likely victim appears to be two-term U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark. President Obama’s post-campaign campaign just scared Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., into retirement after his “no” vote last week. The mayors’ group now wants Pryor’s scalp on their wall — even if there’s no other Democrat in line to...

    The Senate Conservatives Fund announced Wednesday that it has made defeating Sen. Mark L. Pryor, Arkansas Democrat, its No. 1 priority in the 2014 election. “Mark Pryor pretends to be a moderate in Arkansas but votes like a liberal in Washington,” said Matt Hoskins, the executive director of the group -snip- Mr. Obama lost Arkansas by a 23.7 percentage point margin to GOP rival Mitt Romney in the 2012 election.
