Pryor Raised $4 Million for Re-Election Bid, but No Major Opponents

LITTLE ROCK, AR - New campaign finance reports show that U.S. Senator Mark Pryor raised $4 million last year for his re-election bid, a figure that will likely scare off any major party challengers.

According to the reports filed yesterday with the Federal Election Commission, Pryor, a Democrat seeking a second term, raised $615,787 in the last three months of 2007 and has $3.6 million in cash on hand.  He spent $263,389 during the three-month period ending December 31.

The amount he's raised for a virtually unchallenged race rivals the $4.22 million he raised during his successful campaign against then-Senator Tim Hutchinson in 2002.
