Former Arkansas Governor and U.S. Senator campaigning for son

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Former Arkansas Governor and U.S. Senator David Pryor and his wife Barbara have been traveling the state campaigning for their son, Senator Mark Pryor, who is working in Washington D.C. right now.

The two were meeting and greeting people at the old National Commerce Building in Paragould on Wednesday.

Pryor said their trip has been a good one so far, and they hope the people they meet walk away with a better understanding of what their son stands for.

“In this moment of crisis in our country and turmoil and a poisonous spirit in Washington, at no time have we needed people [more] who could build bridges. Mark is a bridge builder,” said Pryor. “He always has been, and I think he will continue to do that throughout his Senate career.”

Mr. Pryor said their next stops are Jonesboro, Newport, Batesville and then back into Little Rock.

Mark Pryor is being challenged by Republican Representative Tom Cotton.

    Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones and enjoy good food, but since that is not an option for everyone, members of the Jonesboro community came together to make sure as many people as possible were fed.
