The Democratic Party has made a six-figure ad by for this hit on Tom Cotton's cozying up to the Koch brothers. The billionaires get ahead and Arkansas gets left behind, says the ad.

True enough. But I"m not ready to be sure this or the income inequality argument has much traction for Democratic candidates. I don't think poor people resent rich people generally, even those who inherited all their money. The issue is how they spend their money in ways that harms those with less — attacks on Medicare, Social Security, nutrition assistance, infrastructure projects. The ad does list votes that illustrate this.
