N Mark Pryor , 38 , is the middle of David and Barbara Pryor's three sons , and the only politician of the group.

Two years later , Pryor was elected governor.
Pryor's two terms in the legislature were not remarkable.Indeed , they were disappointing to some.He seemed to be well liked , but he was not one of the more active or influential legislators , and such bills as he sponsored or co-sponsored were comparatively minor matters of little general interest - cleaning up the legal language in old statutes , that sort of thing.In one of its biennial assessments of legislators , the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette put Pryor in its dreaded furniture category , outraging some of Pryor's friends.
I thought that was unfair , Pryor said.I passed 30 pieces of legislation that session.I always thought I got punished because I wasn't a showboat , I didn't toot my own horn , I didn't cultivate the press..That's not just loser talk.Insufficient cultivation of the press is often a factor in these highly subjective ratings.
A couple of veteran Democratic legislators who served in the House with Pryor thought the furniture label was probably unfair , although one remembered Pryor as being kind of disengaged..Both said his name had inspired high expectations.
