GOP ad hits Pryor over Obamacare

Republicans aren't letting Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor get away with supporting Obamacare without naming the law.

A new ad from the Karl Rove-affiliated GOP group Crossroads GPS is attacking the Democratic incumbent for a two-week-old ad in which he voiced support for provisions of the Affordable Care Act.

“On TV, Mark Pryor talks about the health care law he helped pass,” the 30-second ad says. “What he doesn’t say is that law is Obamacare.”

The ad targeting Arkansas’s incumbent Democratic senator is part of Crossroads GPS’s $2.5 million, two-month long media campaign in support of Pryor’s Republican challenger Rep. Tom Cotton in one of the most heated Senate races this year.

The two ads are the most high-profile exchange on the 2010 law this year, which in the past two election cycles has been more front-and-center in congressional races.

In Pryor's ad, he stated simply that he "helped pass a law" that prevents insurance companies from canceling coverage when a person gets sick.


Cotton has a narrow lead over Pryor in the RealClearPolitics average of polls on the race.
