Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) struggled to answer a softball question about the Obama administration's response to the Ebola crisis during a campaign rally on Monday.

"Um, I would say that, it's hard to know because I haven't heard the latest briefing on that," Pryor said. "My impression is that, we have people over there, both from CDC and other medical-type people and even some engineers to try to build medical facilities. That's what they need over there, they need the medical infrastructure."
When asked if the U.S. has been aggressive enough in containing the virus, Pryor stumbled again.
"Um, again I'd have to see the latest numbers," Pryor said.
