Trump Senate Ally Laying Groundwork for 2024 Presidential Run

Junior GOP Senator from Arkansas Tom Cotton is already looking beyond 2020.

According to a report from Business Insider, Cotton is laying the groundwork for a potential 2024 presidential campaign.

The 43-year-old Army veteran made a trek to New Hampshire – a state which boosts it’s “First in The Nation” primary – to campaign alongside republican candidates this week.

He campaigned alongside former Trump campaign and administration official Matt Mowers who is running for New Hampshire’s first congressional district and Corky Messner, a corporate attorney, who’s challenging US Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D) (Business Insider):

On Monday morning, Cotton made sure his face mask was on for the lone camera rig — from WMUR, the only local TV news outlet in New Hampshire — at a press conference he held with Matt Mowers, a Republican congressional candidate.

Inside the local American Legion chapter in Londonderry, a wealthy suburb of Manchester, his hefty double-tied blue mask rested around his neck as law-enforcement officials across the table discussed the challenges of their profession following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Facing a safe reelection, Cotton spoke about his military experience in Iraq and Afghanistan to make a point about bad cops.

“You know, when I was in the Army, we used to say that we spend 95% of our time on 5% of our soldiers,” Cotton said. “I bet you say the same thing in your departments.”

Cotton is facing re-election in Arkansas this year but the Democrats did not nominate a candidate to run against him which allows him the ability to travel to places like Iowa and New Hampshire to lay the groundwork for a possible White House bid.

While he’s had some disagreements with President Trump – mostly on foreign policy – we can expect to see Cotton continue to appear on Fox News and travel to early 2024 nominating states as he seeks to become an heir to the MAGA movement.

  1. Rush is the one who built up real solid base for conservatives, he led our country out of the death of weak Republicans. I wish him the best and let him know how much I respect him. May you be remembered and honored for what you have done.

  2. Tom Cotton is a good man and I also like Josh Hawley (even more). But I would much rather have a non-politician as the Republican candidate in 2024. President Trump has proven that a business person makes a much better choice for President. Politicians (especially politicians that were/are lawyers) are too compromised and owe too many favors to their sponsors. Unfortunately, a good business person makes way more money in business than being President. WE ARE VERY LUCKY THAT DONALD J. TRUMP STEPPED IN TO HELP THE COUNTRY THAT HE LOVES. There are not many people like him. THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP. Those of us who do not have our heads up our rear-end appreciate what you have done.

    1. Absolutely. Great comment start to finish and so true. Running this country is a business start to finish. Thanks Casey. And like Casey a special HUGE thank you to OUR President Trump and his family. God bless
