Sen. Mark Pryor Slams Rep. Cotton On Medicare And Social Security Cuts In New Ad


Sen. Mark Pryor’s (D-AR) re-election campaign is out with a new ad hitting Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) for supporting cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

The television ad was released by the Pryor campaign on Wednesday. In it, two narrators argue that Cotton has repeatedly voted against the interests of senior citizens by voting to cut Social Security and Medicare while Pryor has worked to “make Social Security and Medicare stronger.”

“Some politicians like Tom Cotton voted to cut Social Security,” one narrator in the ad said. “And raise the the age of eligibility to 70.”

The narrators go on to argue that Pryor has improved the entitlement programs by cutting “billions in waste” and helping to lower prescription costs.

According to Pryor campaign spokesman Erik Dorey, the ad, which began airing on Wednesday, is part of a “major contrast theme going forward.” The Pryor campaign made a six-figure buy on the new ad, which will air throughout Arkansas.
