Like father, like son


Former Arkansas Gov. and U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor (left) and former Arkansas State Legislator and Interim Chancellor at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Calvin Johnson pose for a photo at a campaign event for Pryor’s son, current U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, Tuesday morning.

The elder Pryor and his wife, former Arkansas First Lady Barbara Pryor, were on the first stop of a tour through Southeast Arkansas promoting Democrat Mark Pryor, who is being challenged for another term by current Arkansas 4th District Congressman Republican Tom Cotton. David Pryor told a reporter that when he was campaigning, Facebook and email didn’t exist, so it was necessary to go across the state asking for votes, and that’s what he and his wife are doing on behalf of their son.
