In Arkansas on Friday, Sen. Mark Pryor held a press conference attacking his opponent, Rep. Tom Cotton, for his record on Medicare.

A placard at the podium promised that they would find Cotton's real record at therealtomcottonrecord.com.

That website, however, didn't actually exist yet.

The Cotton campaign quickly jumped on the domain name, creating a redirect to Cotton's own campaign website.

That puts the Pryor campaign in an awkward position. Why was their boss speaking behind a placard promoting his opponent's own website?
