Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) released a new ad Wednesday using incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor’s (D-AR) words of support for Obamacare and President Obama against him.
The ad, which began running in the state Wednesday, is called “Amen” and features Pryor saying, “Barack Obama has the leadership, he has the vision, and he has the hope that this country needs right now, Amen!”
The ad also features clips of Pryor calling Obamacare “an amazing success story” and saying that he would not vote to repeal it because, he says, “it actually is working.”
Pryor and a number of Democrats in tight reelection races have done their best to distance themselves from Obama.
“This election boils down to a very simple choice,” Cotton spokesman David Ray said in a statement. If you want a Senator who will support President Obama over 90% of the time, then Mark Pryor is your guy. But if you want a Senator who will put Arkansas first and stand up to President Obama, then you should vote for Tom Cotton.”
