Mark Pryor has been to this part of town many times before.
“How’s the neighborhood doing here?” he asks the pastor at the small, African-American church that sits across the street from the famous Little Rock Central High School, where Pryor once attended.
“This neighborhood has struggled for a long time, but it’s making a comeback,” Pryor explains to a visiting reporter. [...]
“Some people say I’m a young man in a hurry. Guess what? They’re right. We’ve got urgent problems and I am in a hurry to solve them,” Cotton said when he announced his Senate bid.
The quick rise has won him an attack ad from Pryor, who says that Cotton has “blind ambition” and a sense of entitlement that will turn voters off, even considering his military background.
“There’s a lot of people in the Senate that didn’t serve in the military,” Pryor told NBC News. “Obviously in the Senate we have all types of different people, all kinds of different folks that have come from all types of different backgrounds—and I think that’s part of that sense of entitlement that he gives off is that, almost like, I served my country, let me into the Senate. But that’s not how it works in Arkansas.”
