Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas returns to the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa this week.
On Thursday, Cotton, an Army veteran who served in combat in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and a rising star in the Republican Party, will headline the Story County Iowa GOP’s annual fundraising dinner.
We also learned a few days ago that the Cotton will return next month to New Hampshire, which holds the first primary in the presidential nominating calendar. The senator will headline the state GOP’s annual golf tournament on August 16 at the picturesque Wentworth by the Sea Golf Club in Rye, New Hampshire.
Cotton, who faced nominal opposition as he easily won reelection in 2020 in heavily red Arkansas, has crisscrossed the country the past year and a half, helping fellow Republicans running in November’s midterm elections. And he’s made multiple stops in Iowa and New Hampshire.
