Cotton Accepts, Pryor ??
Little Rock, Arkansas — "They've been exchanging a lot of television ads back and forth. At the end of the day, let's sit down at a table. Let's hear what the real differences are. Let's hear Mark Pryor and Tom Cotton go back and forth." - Chuck Todd, Moderator of Meet The Press
U.S. Senate candidate Tom Cotton has formally accepted a debate invite from KARK-TV to be moderated by political reporter David Goins and Chuck Todd, moderator of NBC's Meet The Press. This marks the seventh debate invitation that Cotton has accepted during his campaign for U.S. Senate. 
Senator Pryor has until Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. to accept or decline the invitation from KARK-TV. The debate would be broadcast statewide on all of the Nexstar Broadcasting stations and reach approximately 1.5 million households. 
Unlike the only other head-to-head debate that Senator Pryor has acceted, the KARK-TV debate would not have any topic limitations. Senator Pryor spcifically rejected the inclusion of foreign policy in a debate proposal from the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce. His campaign tried to deny that fact, but was exposed by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette after emails were released showing the Pryor campaign specifically rejected any discussion of foreign policy in the debate. 
Tom Cotton said, "I'm looking forward to participating in this debate because Arkansans deserve more opportunities to hear the two candidates running for U.S. Senate share their ideas and their visions for our state and our nation. I look forward to laying out my conservative values and ideas and contrasting them with Senator Pryor's record of voting with President Obama 93% of the time."

Cotton has already accepted six other debate proposals, including debates with KATV-TV, KFSM-TV, Northeast Arkansas Political Animals Club, KARK-TV, Fox News Sunday, and the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce.
