U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton weds over weekend

Republican Senate hopeful and U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton has married his girlfriend during a small ceremony over the weekend.

Cotton's Senate campaign said the freshman lawmaker married Anna Peckham, an attorney from Virginia, at a small wedding ceremony with family and close friends on Saturday. The two are currently on a honeymoon during the congressional recess, campaign spokesman David Ray said.

Ray declined to say where the wedding was held or where the couple was honeymooning.

The two have been engaged since late 2013. Ray said they plan to live and raise their family in Arkansas.

Cotton was elected in 2012 to represent south Arkansas' 4th Congressional District. He announced in August he would challenge Democratic U.S. Sen Mark Pryor.

Always looks better to be married than single when you are running for office. Especially to the religious right, should get him a few more votes from them.

Poor guy, he just got back from war and now ...
T6, Michelle has been a great first lady. I was worried that she'd come off as a strident militant on women's and racial issues, but she's done well to bury that inclination and represent the entire country. She's always positive, active and obviously has a great rapport with kids. Who knows, one of those kids she's got moving (with her anti-obesity campaign) may turn out to be the Razorbacks savior down the road.
