LITTLE ROCK (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas has raised more than $1 million over the past three months as he prepares for a heated and expensive re-election fight against Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton next year.

The Democratic lawmaker's campaign said Tuesday it has $4.4 million in the bank for next year's election. Pryor is seeking a third term against Cotton, a first-term lawmaker who announced in August he was challenging Pryor.

Pryor is widely viewed by Republicans as the most vulnerable Senate incumbent seeking re-election next year. He and Cotton and outside groups have been in the middle of an expensive television ad war more than a year before the general election.
