NORTH LITTLE ROCK — Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will be campaigning in Arkansas for GOP Congressman Tom Cotton in Cotton's bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor.

The former Massachusetts governor is scheduled to appear with Cotton at a news conference in North Little Rock.

Cotton is a freshman congressman representing south Arkansas. Pryor was first elected to the Senate in 2002 and is the only Democrat in the state's congressional delegation. The race is one of the most expensive and closely watched in the country.

Romney is among several national GOP figures visiting the state during the next week and campaigned with gubernatorial hopeful Asa Hutchinson in Jonesboro on Wednesday. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is set to visit the state to campaign for Hutchinson next week.

Bishop Romney is the highest-ranked holy man to run for president. Mike Huckabee, who is only a Baptist preacher and certainly not a High Priest or Bishop (Romney is both!), also ran for president. Maybe America needs a Mormon Bishop as president. There is a chance that he could help the Mormon church become larger, as people see his good works as president. Bishop Romney has a lot of ideas he came up with as Governor of Massachusetts, such as Romneycare, that he could spread around the US. Bishop Romney is also a Wall Street banker. In the American South, there is just not much more respect held out for anyone other than a Wall Street banker like Bishop Romney. Southern conservatives love rich, Harvard-educated Wall Street bankers from Massachusetts. Sometimes I wonder if Massachusetts is Arkansas' sister state. Maybe not, but Bishop Romney did very well among the white electorate the last time he ran for president in Arkansas. I don't know Tom Cotton's religion, but maybe a visit with Bishop Romney will impress upon him the benefits of becoming a Mormon.

Maybe Romney can give Cotton some pointers on where to hide all his money overseas. Cotton is going to make lots of money next year as a lobbyist and will need a place to hide it. Maybe Romney will hire Cotton to be a corporate raider who takes over businesses, pays himself huge amounts of money, and then has the business declare bankruptcy to cheat the creditors. Romney can teach Cotton a few things.

Romney is penny ante in Harvard degrees compared to Tom Cotton who has claimed a bachelors in political science in 98 and a bachelors in government in 99 and a law degree in 2002 and this year on his site these Harvard degrees became manga cum laude.
