Major conservative group to target Pryor

Washington (CNN) – Mark Pryor's one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election this year. Up until now he's been spared the wrath of Americans for Prosperity, the conservative group that's spent millions this election cycle attacking Democrats over the new health care law, better known as Obamacare.

But that ends Thursday, when AFP says it will go up with ads highlighting the two-term Senator from Arkansas' support for the Affordable Care Act, which is President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement.
