President Obama will appear with an embattled incumbent Democratic senator on Wednesday, but they won't be campaigning. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., who is in a tough re-election battle with Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., will join Obama for a tour of tornado damage in central Arkansas. Like other Republican candidates, especially in the South, Cotton has tried to link Pryor to Obama, who has low approval ratings in Arkansas. For his part, Pryor has sought to distance himself from Obama and the national Democratic Party.
