David Pryor, former governor and senator of Arkansas, has died at the age of 89

“After the McClellan race, I left politics, or politics abandoned me,” he wrote in his 2008 autobiography, “A Pryor Commitment.” “I didn’t care who was governor or president. For months I avoided reading the newspaper. I just wanted to be left alone and, like General MacArthur, to disappear quietly.”
