Arkansas Senators Differ on Iraq, But Cast Same Vote

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The identical votes they cast in favor of ending an all-night debate on bringing troops home from Iraq don't reflect views on the war held by Arkansas' two senators, Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor.

Pryor and Lincoln, both Democrats, were among those who wanted to cut off debate and proceed to a final vote.  Pryor said that was because he opposes a troop withdrawal date, while Lincoln said her vote was cast because she favors the proposal to pull troops out of Iraq, beginning in 120 days.
