Democrats Target Cotton on TV in Arkansas #ARSEN
Posted at 11:07 a.m. on June 27, 2013
A Democratic outside group launched a TV ad in Arkansas on Thursday targeting GOP Rep. Tom Cotton, a potential Senate candidate.
The ad, which will air statewide for the next two weeks, portrays the freshman Republican as someone “out for himself, not us.” A source said the total ad buy from the affiliated groups Senate Majority PAC and Patriot Majority USA is for about $270,000.
The incumbent is a prolific fundraiser with a strong personal brand, but the state continues to trend Republican. President Barack Obama lost Arkansas in 2012 by 23 points.
Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call rates the race a Tossup.
