A Southern Democrat campaigning for Barack Obama is quite the endangered species. That’s why Mark Pryor will be sitting this one out.
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) says he won’t be “very active” in campaigning for President Obama’s reelection.
Speaking with with The City Wire, a local Arkansas news site, Pryor, who endorsed Hillary Clinton for president during the 2008 presidential elections, said he would be “not very active” in the 2012 elections, including campaigning for Obama.
“As much as I may love all of our presidents, I just don’t really get involved in those races. My view is, Democrat, Republican, it doesn’t matter, my view is I’m in Washington to try to work with people,” Pryor said in an interview that was published Monday afternoon.
Pryor did not elaborate in the interview what “very active” would mean, and didn’t say if he would endorse a candidate for president.
Pryor described himself as a “nonpartisan” legislator.
Sure. Maybe if the media can manufacture a couple more bogus polls showing how hugely popular Obama is then maybe Pryor might locate his testicles.
