Senator Mark Pryor, who represents the trending conservative state of Arkansas, didn’t exactly offer a robust endorsement of Obama when asked whether he would campaign with him:

“I’m not there to represent a president,” Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor said on a Fort Smith television interview program.

“I think that is one thing that I think people in Arkansas understand, but nationally people have forgotten this,” he added.

Pryor, a second-term senator, isn’t up for re-election until 2014.

Asked about his level for support of Obama, Pryor said: “Not very active.”

“As much as I may love all of our presidents … I just don’t really get involved in those races,” Pryor said. “My view is, Democrat, Republican, it doesn’t matter, my view is I’m in Washington to try to work with people.”
