LITTLE ROCK — Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton's campaign says he raised more than $1.24 million in the final three months of 2013 in his bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas this fall.

Cotton's campaign on Thursday announced that Cotton had outraised Pryor, the two-term lawmaker he's challenging. Pryor announced earlier this month he had raised $1.1 million during the same fundraising period.

Jan. 31 is the deadline for federal candidates to file their year-end and fourth quarter fundraising reports.

Pryor still has more money in the bank than Cotton, reporting $4.2 million cash on hand earlier this month. Cotton ended the year with more than $2.2 million in the bank, his campaign said.

Cotton is a freshman congressman representing south Arkansas who announced his candidacy in August.

I encourage everybody to go to fecdotgov. Click on Arkansas, click on Cotton's senate campaign and start reading the places of employment of many of these contributions. Much of the money is from Club for Growth and Koch related enterprises. Look at all the names of attorneys from northern Virginia, D.C., New York, Delaware, Chicago, and Dallas. Many of these "attorneys" are lobbyists. This is what is wrong with America.

I also did the same for Pryor. Pryor has lots of money from Democrats from all over the country. However, I am much less concerned about the dangers of the influences of the actor Ted Danson than I am the hedge fund managers, the defense industry, and the pollution industry supporting Cotton.

Hey Pop - There isn't enough money in the world for Mark Pryor to run away from BH Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and his party affiliation that supports abortion on demand, higher taxes, gun control, same-sex marriage, and Obamacare - all issues that consistently poll as losing propositions in Arkansas. Not ready to call the race yet for Cotton, but if the pulse of Arkansas voters doesn't change between now and November, Pryor is toast.
