LITTLE ROCK — The Democrat trying to unseat Sen. Tom Cotton in Arkansas is trailing the incumbent Republican lawmaker in fundraising.

Josh Mahony on Monday reported raising about $110,000 during the three-month fundraising period that ended June 30. Cotton reported raising $1 million during the same fundraising period.

Mahony's fundraising total included $25,477 he gave his campaign, and he reported having about $51,000 in the bank. Mahony spent $59,243 during the quarter.

Cotton reported having nearly $3.5 million in the bank and spent $362,448 during the quarter.

Cotton was first elected to the Senate in 2014 after defeating incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor.

    Mahony won't get a penny from the DNSCC. They know he's a lost cause. Really a shame to that the two-party system is dead in Arkansas. The democrat party is no longer a viable entity in Arkansas.

    Who and
    Who?
    I'm sorry do either of these people represent Arkansas?
    Are they STATESMEN? Representing the HIGH and the LOW?
    Of THIS STATE, and NO OTHER?
    Or do they want the perks of the job?
    Global enterprise, a MILLION to your NET WORTH
    Etc etc.
    YES THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM IS DEAD IN THE SOUTH.
    IF YOU THINK THESE RINOS ARE "IN THE CLUB"
    ASK THEM WHO THEY VOTED FOR
    Cotton didnt support Trump.
    Cotton supports the anti/fake Constitution mafia.
    Cotton is a yes MAN.
    Cotton is a tin star.
    Cotton doesnt GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ARKANSAS.

    Democratic Party: Hey, we should run this nobody white dude who lost his last race, cause, he's totally gotta be the best choice in the state. (High fives all around the room)
    Voters Under 50: Um, no. Who TF is this guy anyway?
    Democratic Party: Go back in the kitchen kids. We've got favors to pay back older than your car.

    No need to actually seek out a decent candidate anymore. Just whip out the old Democratic party favor payback list and see which family is next in line. If they'd chosen Joyce Elliot-I'd be writing a check and trying to host a house party fundraiser right now. The former head of the state Education Association just came out of that role and she would be amazing. Oh well, hopefully we will all have six long years to figure out how to not let this happen again next time.

    oboxer just please share what Tom (and for that matter French Hill John Boozman Rick Crawford etc) have done for Arkansas besides passing a Tax Scam that wound up going mostly to rich folk and a Trade War that wound up causing Republicans to give 30 BILLION to Farmers as a direct result of the same Trade War? your Party hates Socialism for Poor folks but have No problem as long as its rich, mostly white CEOs and "Patriot Farmers"... GREAT JOB TOM!!

    Mahony trails in fund-raising. Is that a surprise? Cottonmouth is bought and paid for by Israelis and the Koch Brothers, both which have pretty much unlimited pockets. As I've said in the past, show me anything good Cottonmouth has done for this state or the country. He has his nose so far up Trumpy's behind that he can see Trumpy's tonsils. All he does is jumps in and grabs a photo op when the time is right, otherwise, he is totally useless.

    ( last paragraph)......." after defeating incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Pryor"

    Did all you gun control fanatics gather at Boltar's house to celebrate the defeat of Mark Pryor ?

    Bloomberg got so upset with Democrat Senators who didn't " toe the line" on Barack HUSSEIN Obama's gun control that he TARGETED those Democrats for DEFEAT and mentioned each one by name.

    I never read a post by a single " usual suspect" blasting Bloomberg and supporting Mark Pryor ( D-AR )

    So now you're complaining about Tom Cotton ?

    I'm PLEASED with Tom Cotton.

    FINE young man who will be around for MANY years to come.

    Get used to him !

    I have been rendered speechless by the comments posted. Ethics and morality have gone out the window, as well as spelling and grammar.
