    Pryor declines invitation to debate Hutchinson on Meet the Press BY MICHAEL ROWETT ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE The Mark Pryor campaign turned down Friday an opportunity to appear on the nationally televised Meet the Pressprogram with his U.S. Senate opponent, incumbent Tim Hutchinson. Michael Teague, Pryor’s campaign spokesman, denied that he was ducking a confrontation with the senator."I mean we just debated last week, and we’ll debate again in October," Teague said. "I’m sure there’ll be some other venues the two candidates will be together at." He said "venues" meant debates and he was talking about more than the Oct. 14 debate...

    Is Pryor repeating Gore's mistake? Reports that Arkansas Senate candidate Mark Pryor wants to distance himself from local-boy-made-good Bill Clinton have Clintonites spitting bullets. Their complaint: Without Clinton's support and avid fundraising for the Democrat, Pryor would be far behind in his race to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Tim Hutchinson, not just three points behind in a recent poll. Reports from Arkansas say he's skipping today's Clinton event in West Memphis supposedly to prepare for a debate with Hutchinson. Pryor, who was the chairman of Al Gore's presidential campaign in Arkansas, should have learned from Gore that distancing oneself from...

State officials capitulated and agreed to move the flag to a Confederate monument on state house grounds. This should have ended the issue. But it hasn't. The NAACP now says it will rev up the boycott again until state officials toss the...
