Is Arkansas, Home of the Clintons, Losing Its Democratic Way?
(GILLETT, Ark.) — The front line in the fight for control of the Senate is in Arkansas. Sen. Mark Pryor has a golden name in Democratic politics. For 16 years, he’s been on a statewide ballot, rising from attorney general to the U.S. Senate. When he ran for re-election to a second term in 2008, he received 80 percent of the vote. Republicans didn’t field a challenger.
