Tom Cotton is running for re-election. Duh.

U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton said today that he's running for re-election in 2020. Just remember, state law was changed in 2015 so that Cotton could run for re-election and run for president in 2020 if opportunity knocked.

Tom Cotton is nothing if not opportunistic. Suppose Donald Trump was otherwise occupied by early retirement, jailing, something.

He's helping his party in the mid-term, he said. No doubt. His PAC's rake of corporate money is being used to help Russian-colluding 2nd District Rep. French Hill beat Democratic challenger Clarke Tucker. Cotton predicted continuing GOP majorities in House and Senate, perhaps an expansion in the Senate.
