Dem Sen. Pryor: GOP Challenger Tom Cotton Has "Sense Of Entitlement" About Military Service


SEN. MARK PRYOR (D-AR): When I look at Congressman Cotton's record, I don't see where he's passed a bill, I don't see where he's really accomplished anything in the House. And he seems to have run for the House just to run for the Senate.


KASIE HUNT, NBC NEWS: So how do you view his two tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq, in the context of that?

MARK PRYOR: I appreciate that, I have great respect for that, I would never criticize anyone for serving our country, and I say thank you for that. 

HUNT: But you don't see it as a qualification to become a senator?

PRYOR: Uhh... no. There's a lot of people in the Senate that didn't serve in the military.


PRYOR: In the Senate we have all kinds of different people, all kinds of different folks who come from different backgrounds. And I think that's part of this sense of entitlement, that he gives off, that almost is like, I served my country, therefore let me into the senate. That's not the way it works in Arkansas.
