Tom Cotton's $3.8 Million Fundraising Quarter Sets New Record

Record-setting fundraising leaves Cotton well positioned with less than 30 days until Election Day

Little Rock, Arkansas — U.S. Senate candidate Tom Cotton announced today that he has raised $3.8 million during the third quarter of 2014, a record-setting number for statewide candidates in Arkansas. The exceptional financial support leaves Cotton well positioned to knock off two-term incumbent Senator Mark Pryor on November 4th.

Cotton's impressive fundraising totals were made possible by adding an eye-popping 20,444 new donors during the three-month period from July through September. In those ninety-one days, the campaign received 32,199 contributions from donors.

Cotton's 3rd quarter fundraising eclipsed the previous record of $2.65 million set in 2010 by then-Senator Blanche Lincoln.

Tom Cotton said, "Thank you to each and every person who is generously helping our campaign with their time, resources and energy. It is the work of our thousands of volunteers and supporters in Arkansas and around the country that will lift us to victory on November 4th. Together, we will make Washington, D.C. listen to the voices of Arkansans who are sick and tired of politics as usual and who want to get our country back on track."

The Cotton Campaign release a new ad called "Head On," highlighting the lessons of leadership he learned in the U.S. Army.

Using lines from his U.S. Senate announcement speech at the Dardanelle Community Center in Yell County, Cotton promises to tackle problems head on, shake up the status quo in Washington, and to always stay true to his roots:
"In the Army, they trained us that leaders don't sit quietly on the back bench and hope someone else solves their problems. Real leaders do their duty, they take responsibility, and they tackle problems head on," said Cotton. "Arkansans deserve a Senator who won't just stand by and accept the status quo. I will do the right thing even when it's the hard thing. And I will never forget how I was raised or where I come from."
