Potential Pryor Challenger Emerges

Unfortunately, he`s not a Republican.  Democrat Lt. Gov. Bill Halter has thus far refused to rule out a challenge to Sen. Mark Pryor.  Halter, though popular, is not nearly as popular or well known as the incumbent.  What`s more, all of the state`s constitutional officers save Halter have already acted in support of Pryor, making the task of fundraisingfor the bid a formidable one.  With Pryor looking strong, it is tough to see where Halter`s establishment support would come from.  As such, Halter is unlikely to make the challenge, but a headache, even a small one, for Pryor is certainly welcome news for Republicans, who continue to search for a challenger.
