Mark Pryor, the two-term Democratic senator up for reelection next year, says Obamacare has "been an amazing success story" in his state of Arkansas.

“I would say if you want a good opinion about Obamacare, go right here to Mercy Hospital and ask them how they feel about it," Pryor told news affiliate KHOG. "It’s been an amazing success story so far." Watch the video below:

Pryor, who was reelected in 2008, voted for Obamacare in 2010 and is considered one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators in the 2014 elections.

Tom Cotton, a freshman Republican congressman, officially announced Tuesday he would challenge Pryor for his seat, which was once held by Pryor's father David, a former governor.
