….you know, for a Democratic incumbent seen by some as all-but-dead on arrival come Election Night this November, he sure as hell still has a lot of fight left in him:
A new Anzalone Lizst Grove Research (D) poll in Arkansas finds Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) leads Rep. Tom Cotton (R) in the U.S. Senate race among likely voters, 48% to 45%, with 7% of the electorate undecided. More evidence Pryor is ahead: The AP reports that Cotton called for a series of five debates with Pryor.(Political Wire)
Now, I know I’ve criticized Sen. Pryor in the past before (and for good reason) but, given the fact that Pryor (and several other Dems’ this November) are fighting for their political lives in an election season that’s all-but-tailor-made for Republicans to potentially run the table, this is good news for Pryor and – to a lesser extent – for Democratic chances this November.
