Sen. Mark Pryor (D.-Ar.) defines a Middle Class American as someone earning over $200,000 per year.

According to the Daily Caller, "Expect to see this gaffe get plenty of playtime in attack ads and on cable news: Arkansas Democratic Senator Mark Pryor apparently thinks that the middle class makes $200,000 annually."

Sen. Pryor is quoted as saying that, “Well again, I’d say probably up to $200,000, there’s different definitions but that’s my working definition.”

As reported by the Daily Caller, "Pryor made the comment during Tuesday night’s Arkansas Senate debate when asked to define the middle class. “Well you know, under the law there’s a lot of different definitions of middle-class, but when I think of the middle class I think of most of Arkansas, and maybe that goes up to $150,000, $200,000, there’s different ways to judge it.”

Sen. Mark Pryor is running for re-election against the GOP nominee, Tom Cotton.
