Tom Cotton

19 Aug

Tom Cotton is who I will be throwing my full support behind should he decide to run for office to challenge Blanche Lincoln as U.S. Senator for Arkansas.  Maybe I’m overconfident but I think Cotton winning the primary is a foregone conclusion.  Regarding the primaries, there have been meetings that have reportedly taken place between possible ‘viable’ candidates outlining scenarios for the race…that and some of the potential candidates, on the never-ending GOP list, quite frankly are not viable candidates.  But Cotton is a guy you should get to know very well b/c if you live in AR he could be one of your next Senators.  I’ve included a couple links below that you can click at will to learn a bit more about Tom Cotton.  (sidenote – both of the authors of the articles are cool dudes – I’ve hung out with both in casual settings over a couple fine beverages and a also over a cigar)

quite possibly your next AR Senator

my potential senate candidate can kick your potential senate candidate's ass

    You’ve been hanging out with Kappas? Ei yi yi…

    (I went to college w/ David & Jason and was a “lil’ sis” for their fraternity. Great guys, even if they did give me a hard time about being a Democrat…)

    How do I get in touch with Mr. Cotton? My two sons are Army sergeants, and my daughter is an Air Force officer — oldest son finished second Iraq tour in May; daughter began third deployment same day; youngest began second Iraq tour this month. Fifteen search pages had info on Mr. Cotton, but no email address. I would like to do volunteer work for Mr. Cotton.

      Hello Sgt Hensley,
      First I truly appreciate your family’s service for our country! If you’re on facebook he is on facebook. Otherwise I can get his email from my friend; I’ve only communicated directly with him via facebook b/c he just recently got back in the states.

    One site said he extended his time last year to go to Afghanistan. I am not on facebook. If you could get Mr. Cotton’s (or by now CPT Cotton’s, I would suppose) address, I would appreciate it.

      I spoke to a friend of mine who is handling all the logistical stuff for the campaign and he mentioned you can email him to help get involved. We’re going to need a bunch of help to get this election won! So what we’ll do is you can send me an email at (put Cotton in the subject line so I know it’s from you) and then I’ll email you my friend’s email and you can contact him. This way we don’t plaster everyone’s email out on blogs. 🙂 This seems so covert. haha
