Republican Tom Cotton of Arkansas looks to be the likely (and deserving) winner in his race for the Republican nomination in Arkansas's Fourth Congressional District. Having led the GOP field in fundraising, Cotton, an Army veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, landed a big endorsement today that should help him shore up the youth vote in the southwest Arkansas district ahead of the May 22 primary:

Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for the 60 Plus Association, a national non-partisan senior citizen group, today announced that Tom Cotton has earned the group’s Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award. Cotton is running for election to the U.S. House of Representatives in the 4th District of Arkansas.

In a statement released by 60 Plus, Boone remarked, “I’m still singing at concerts, but today I’m singing the praises of Tom Cotton. Seniors can depend on Tom Cotton.”  Boone, 77, and his wife, Shirley, have been married for 57 years and reside in Beverly Hills, California.
