Pryor Distances Himself from Obama

Sen. Mark Pryor's (D-AR) "political destiny -- and potentially that of the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate -- may come down to which president Arkansas voters most closely associate with him," Bloomberg reports.

"Republicans are trying to paint Pryor as a Barack Obama Democrat who backed the health-care legislation and 2009 economic stimulus. Pryor is more comfortable being associated with a different president, fellow Arkansan Bill Clinton."

That Clinton is making a big speech in Little Rock on Obamacare next month is probably an attempt to be helpful to Pryor.
