Pryor Meets Obama in Arkansas

New York Times: "Among those greeting Mr. Obama when he landed in Little Rock was the state's Democratic senator, Mark Pryor, who is running for re-election against Representative Tom Cotton. The race has been expected to be tight, and Mr. Pryor has tried, until recently, to distance himself from Mr. Obama and other Democrats. The president is particularly unpopular in Arkansas -- and this was his first visit to a state he lost by wide margins in both 2008 and 2012."

"But the powerful tornado that roared through this town of 3,800 people two weeks ago has pushed politics to the side, and last week Mr. Pryor -- one of only a handful of Senate Democrats from the South -- issued an invitation to the president to visit and bear witness to the devastation."
