REPORTER: The Democratic incumbent, Senator Mark Pryor making a last push to hang on to his seat, meeting with Republicans in Fort Smith, Arkansas supporting him. Pryor going farther than he ever has distancing himself with President Obama, telling me yesterday the biggest drag on his re-election bid is the president.

PRYOR: Well, you know, he has been a drag. I’m just going to be honest about that. People here know that I have had my fair share of disagreements with him and you can look at, you know, gun control issues. You can look at Keystone pipeline. You know, I never supported one of his budgets.
