Religion Becomes Issue In Arkansas Senate Race

Earlier this week, ABC News reported on the prominent place that religion has assumed in the race for U.S. Senate in Arkansas. In a television interview last week, Republican Rep. Tom Cotton, seeking to capture the Senate seat from incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor, commented on the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision, saying:
It's another example of how Obamacare infringes on the liberties of all Arkansans. Barack Obama and Mark Pryor think that faith is something that only happens at 11 on Sunday mornings.
In response, in a television ad running state-wide,Pryor, holding a Bible, says:
I'm not ashamed to say that I believe in God, and I believe in His word. The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers, only God does.
