LITTLE ROCK — Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor and Republican rival U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton are expected to address a group of private university and college leaders in Arkansas.
Pryor and Cotton are scheduled to address Arkansas' Independent Colleges and Universities at the group's annual meeting Friday at the Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock. The group represents 11 private colleges and universities from around the state.
The two are scheduled to appear separately before the group. The other scheduled speakers include Gov. Mike Beebe, U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin, U.S. Sen. John Boozman and state Higher Education Director Shane Broadway.
Pryor was first elected in 2002 and is seeking a third term next year. Cotton is a first-term congressman who announced in August that he is running against Pryor.
