Former Republican presidential nominee and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney endorsed Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton on Thursday, his campaign said..
In a statement, Romney said Cotton would be a “much-needed check on the Obama administration and would fight for conservative values."
Cotton said in the statement that the endorsement highlighted the differences between himself and U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor of Fayetteville, whom he criticized for supporting the Affordable Care Act promoted by President Barack Obama.
Romney agreed to help Cotton raise funds for his campaign by sending direct mail to Republican donors, Cotton's campaign added.
