Independent expenditure says Cotton a poor crop

A friend passes along a billboard message purchased near Jonesboro by Steve Strauss, an Arkansas native who lives in New York Washington, D.C. but keeps up with Arkansas politics. (He informs me he has filed an independent expenditure disclosure form with the Federal Election Commission and that he'll be knocking on doors in Arkansas the last four days before the election.)

I hope Strauss tuned in to last night's debate. Sen. Mark Pryor won again, with responses tailored to questions against Tom Cotton's robotic anti-Obama message. From health care to farm legislation to student loans, Pryor had ready answers that illustrated the sharp differences in this race. Mark Pryor votes for people. Tom Cotton votes for a pinched ideology that serves a handful of the wealthy.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
