  •  Pryor (11+ / 0-)

    Speaking as an Arkansan on the far left side of the spectrum, Pryor is a disappointment to me. Despite being a genuinely nice guy, he's not the person I would really like to represent me in D.C.

    However, I know that in this state, my political views are an extreme minority. Realistically, my ideal candidate wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of carrying the state. As much as it pains me to say, lukewarm Democrats like Pryor are about the most progressive this state will do on a national level right now. And when it comes right down to it, I'd take Pryor over Cotton every time. Someone who votes with us 50% of the time is better than someone who is always against us.

      Republicans in congress. Cotton is a nut.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
