Cotton for Senate: New ads

U.S. Senate candidate Tom Cotton campaign released two new ads. Today, it was Pile Up highlighting his commitment to rein in Washington's out-of-control debt and deficit spending. The issue presents a stark contrast with Senator Mark Pryor, who has helped President Obama add, on average, $1 trillion to our national debt every single year. The ad was originally recorded early in the campaign, but is being released as a web ad in the closing days of the U.S. Senate race.
Cotton narrates the ad, saying: "After just a year in Washington, I've got bad news. It's a whole lot worse than we thought. Both parties put off hard decisions. They keep on spending, and the debt just piles up. They just don't get it. If you like Washington today, I'm probably not your candidate. But if you're ready to make things right, I'm ready to serve."

Cotton has consistently advocated for limited government and reducing government spending to balance our budget. On the other hand, Senator Pryor has voted against a balanced budget amendment three different times.

If you listen to Senator Pryor's false, negative campaign, Tom Cotton hates puppies, baseball, and apple pie.

In response, yesterday the Cotton campaign released Cowboy.

Does Tom Cotton hate puppies? That's likely to be the next attack in line from Senator Mark Pryor's bitterly negative campaign that he has been waging for the last 14 months. It's also the question addressed in a new ad Wednesday from U.S. Senate candidate Tom Cotton that highlights the ridiculousness of Pryor's attacks.

According to The Washington Post, groups like President Obama's DSCC and Harry Reid's Super PACs have spent in excess of $14 million in negative ads attacking Cotton, and that doesn't include the millions upon millions in false, negative ads from Senator Pryor himself.

The new ad features a cameo appearance from Tom and Anna Cotton's dog, Cowboy, and Cotton preemptively rebuts what could be (no, really) the next line of attack from a U.S. Senator who has grown increasingly desperate as he tries to cling to power.

"Senator Pryor has proven he will say or do anything to hang on to power," said Cotton spokesman David Ray. "After rubber-stamping President Obama's agenda 93% of the time, it's no wonder why he wants to distract voters' attention from his out-of-touch record."
