It would be nice if Republicans took control of the Senate this cycle, but as conservatives have learned the hard way over the last 20 years, any old Republican will not do. There are some great Republican leaders, some so-so ones, and some who are no better than the Democrats. This, after all, is why we still have a farm bill, despite Republican control of the House for all but four of the last nineteen years; too many in the GOP are willing to play the same old, crooked Beltway game.

Cotton isn’t, and it is why having him in the Senate would be great for conservatism.
