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.
