Club for Growth targets Mark Pryor with first ad of 2014 cycle


The well-funded group, known for spending big to back fiscally conservative candidates in GOP primaries, is notably targeting a Democrat in their first ad of the year. But the Club may be sending a signal to one of its favorite lawmakers, Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), that if he challenges Pryor for the Senate seat, they'll have his back in the state.

No Republican has announced a bid against Pryor yet, though Cotton is mulling a run.

The ad will launch Friday on broadcast and cable television in Arkansas, and the group says it's spending six figures to run it, a substantial buy in the inexpensive state.
