Senator Mark Pryor, a stalwart Democrat, is up for reelection, but now so fast; on his tail is Representative Tom Cotton, who has gained an advantage. This is good news in the Republicans attempt to wrestle the Senate from the pit bull Harry Reid.
According to a Public Policy Polling poll of likely voters, 43 percent would vote for Representative Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who is seeking a Senate seat, if the election were held today. Thirty-eight percent would vote for Pryor.
Pryor isn’t very popular in The Natural State. Just 36 percent of likely voters approve of his job performance. About half (51 percent) do not.
