Mark Pryor Dismisses Tom Cotton’s Military Service, Says It Gives Him “Sense of Entitlement”

In an interview with NBC News, Mark Pryor dismissed Republican Tom Cotton’s military service in the U.S. Senate race in Arkansas saying that it leads to a “sense of entitlement.”

The quick rise has won him an attack ad from Pryor, who says that Cotton has “blind ambition” and a sense of entitlement that will turn voters off, even considering his military background. “There’s a lot of people in the Senate that didn’t serve in the military,” Pryor told NBC News. “Obviously in the Senate we have all types of different people, all kinds of different folks that have come from all types of different backgrounds-and I think that’s part of that sense of entitlement that he gives off is that, almost like, I served my country, let me into the Senate. But that’s not how it works in Arkansas.”
