PRYOR: Will minimum wage become issue in his campaign against Cotton?
that in a speech focused on the healthcare law today, President Barack Obama
will also touch on economic issues, including a call to raise the federal minimum wage. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats are reportedly considering a vote
on the minimum wage before Christmas.
Sen. Mark Pryor
has brought up minimum wage hikes before
against his challenger Rep. Tom Cotton
, who voted against a raise in the House, so Pryor may see some political opportunity here.
