Behind the Ad: Conservative super-PAC attacks Sen. Mark Pryor on health care

By Richard K. Barry

Who: Senate Conservative Action

Where: Arkansas

What's going on: First Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) gets hit on gun control. Now he gets it on ObamaCare from the right.  In this ad, a group calling itself Senate Conservative Action slams Pryor for being the deciding vote on major health care legislation. The piece tees up a small businessman to say that Americans can either have health care or they can have jobs,  but they can't have both. 

The Hill:

The organization often backs conservatives in GOP Senate primaries, but it and the Club for Growth have been spending much of their early money ripping Pryor. That money seems designed to entice Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) to jump in the race, which Cotton is expected to do

Pryor is mighty vulnerable in 2014 and everybody knows it. From the left it's criticism for not supporting background checks. From the right it's ObamaCare. Funny things is that both of these attacks will hurt him and help him, we just don't know how things will balance out come election day.
