    Nashville, TN – Today, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham introduced the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The legislation currently has 33 cosponsors – but Senator Alexander is not one of them. Conservative Senate candidate Joe Carr called on Senator Alexander to change his stance and add himself as a co-sponsor. “I’m strongly pro-life and believe it’s imperative the Senate pass this important piece of legislation. When Senator Graham announced his co-sponsors and Senator Alexander’s name was missing, I was disappointed. I am hoping Senator Alexander will change his stance and add himself as a co-sponsor. This legislation is too...

    After holding fast through the 16 days of the government shutdown, some Democrats in the Congress are now starting to entertain the idea of delay when it comes to parts of the Obama health law, amid bipartisan concern over troubles with the healthcare.gov website. "I believe, given the technical issues, it makes sense to extend the time for people to sign up," said Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), one Democrat up for re-election in 2014 whom Republicans thought they could pressure during the shutdown fight.

    We’ve known for some time that Mark Pryor is the the most endangered Democrat in the US Senate. Arkansas tossed out Blanche Lincoln in 2010, losing to John Boozman by 21 points, and Arkansas went for Mitt Romney over Barack Obama last year by 24 points. Until today’s University of Arkansas poll, though, no one really knew just how endangered Pryor is. The incumbent Senator has only a 34% approval rating from his constituents, deep into the below-40% danger zone for re-election. The only bright spot? Boozman isn’t doing much better: When respondents considered the performance of their elected officials...

    In a secret meeting on Tuesday morning, Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) hosted a bipartisan group of senators and House members in the Capitol’s basement. According to several participants, the lawmakers plotted ways to stop the use of U.S. military force in Syria. Since the diplomatic situation is fluid, there was no final consensus on how best to combat the administration, but potential legislative maneuvers, press appearances, and letters were discussed. Several undecided members asked questions. Aides say Paul planned the gathering over a week ago, and the list of attendees grew by the day. He is pleased, especially, by...

    Congressional support for controversial online piracy legislation eroded dramatically on Wednesday in the face of an unprecedented online protest supported by tech titans such as Google, Wikipedia and Facebook. Several key senators withdrew their support from the Senate's Protect IP Act (PIPA), including Tea Party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), an elected member of his party's leadership. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who leads the Senate GOP's campaign team, said the legislation should be put on hold, while Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a sponsor and the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, retreated from the...

    Democrat criticizes Obama for '4,200 pages' of pending regulations By Joshua Altman - 11/22/11 12:29 PM ET Former Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln (Ark.) attacked the Obama administration Tuesday for proposing a litany of new regulations she says are hurting the economy. "You’ve got 4,200 pages of pending, new regulations to be put on the books that just create huge uncertainty,” Lincoln said. Lincoln lost her reelection bid last year to Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.) and is now chairwoman of the Small Businesses for Sensible Regulations campaign at the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). The former two-term senator said in...

    Republican John Boozman now holds a near two-to-one lead over Democratic incumbent Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas’ U.S. Senate race, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state. Boozman earns 61% of the vote, while Lincoln, coming off her Democratic Primary runoff win last week, picks up 32% support. Four percent (4%) favor some other candidate in the race, while just three percent (3%) remain undecided. Lincoln, who is seeking a third term in the Senate, was reelected in 2004 with 56% of the vote. But she has been struggling politically at home since late...

    LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Arkansas Health Department director Dr. Fay Boozman, appointed to the post in 1999 after an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate, died Saturday in an apparent farm accident. Boozman was 58 years old. He is survived by his wife, Vickie; their three children; his brother, U.S. Rep. John Boozman, R-Ark.; and their mother, who lives in Fort Smith. Officials said Fay Boozman was working by himself in his barn in Rogers when part of the barn gave way and crushed him at 4 p.m. Saturday. The Boozman family didn't want further details released. "The family...

    WASHINGTON, DC— U.S. Rep. John Boozman (R-AR), a member of the Veterans Affairs Health Subcommittee, issued the following statement regarding John Kerry’s visit to Arkansas: "Arkansans should judge John Kerry on his health care record, not his rhetoric. The reality is that Kerry tried to block the President's legislation that is guaranteeing affordable prescription drugs for all 453,000 Medicare beneficiaries in Arkansas. Kerry has also opposed the President's actions to limit the frivolous lawsuits driving up health care costs. "John Kerry has a history of talking up health care reform when running for office, but his attention span only lasts...
