Pryor Announces Re-Election Plans for '08

NOVEMBER 10, 2006 - Posted at 7:55 a.m. CST


LITTLE ROCK (AP) - U.S. Senator Mark Pryor says he plans to seek re-election in 2008.

Pryor, a Democrat, hasn't formally announced his intentions, but said he's planning to run again for the seat he won four years ago. Pryor was state attorney general at the time, and unseated Republican incumbent Senator Tim Hutchinson. No Republicans have announced their intentions, but Pryor says he expects some competition.

Pryor is the son of former U.S. Senator David Pryor. Arkansas' other senator -- Democrat Blanche Lincoln -- is serving a term that ends in 2011.
