Young man in a hurry — Tom Cotton

Posted By on Thu, Nov 13, 2014 at 9:59 AM

U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, not yet a U.S. senator, gave one of the nomination speeches Thursday for Sen. Mitch McConnell's election as Senate majority leader.

McConnell has said Democrats need to move to the middle to make Congress work again. That would be territory Tom Cotton has rarely occupied, even within his own party.

UPDATE: Also this from a Politico tip sheet:

SPOTTED ... K ST WARMS UP TO COTTON: Around 30 downtowners headed to the invite-only victory party at BVG to celebrate Sen.-elect Tom Cotton 's victory over Mark Pryor. Spotted: Tina Jones of UnitedHealth, Rob Chamberlin of McBee Strategic, Jim Frogue of FrogueClark, Randall Gerard of Podesta Group, Matt Lapinski of Crossroads Strategies and Dave Lugar of Lugar Hellmann, along with the Bellwether Group fundraising team.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
