    After all factions express their subjective opinions, the vote still hinges on qualifications to serve and work in the best interests for the greatest number of Arkansans. Not just on specific votes cast but rather on a record of balanced and cooperative congressional reasoning. Any specific Senate vote is certain to please or offend various segments of the electorate. I hope we focus on balance and proven moral character.

    On the other hand Pryor worked as a lawyer for a few years then gained public office off of his father's name. Among his accomplishments he can include passing ObamaCare and voting with Obama 90% of the time(in 2013). Also, he voted for the failed Obama stimulus & trillions of dollars in defecit spending over his career while saddling us & our children with debt. I'm afraid we can't afford any more of his accomplishments.

    Last year I heard Cotton, Live on TV, say that he didn't think the two wars had contributed to our deficit. Hard to take anything this man says seriously.

    Some of the smartest people I have met have been in the Military. And some of the dumbest.

    Democrat party of Arkansas declined to comment. That says it all. What an incredibly stupid thing for Pryor to say.

    Pryor always has supported the veterans. They know that. While military service is admirable, it does not, by itself, qualify one for office. Cotton's fervor for getting us into more foreign wars is frightening.

    So Pop, what makes Cotton a war monger?
