Rep. Cotton’s New Ad Slams Obama On FP

Rep. Tom Cotton is throwing punches at President Obama and his Democratic allies for "underestimating" the threat of radical terrorists.

Cotton, the Republican candidate for Arkansas’ U.S. Senate seat, released an ad Sunday criticizing the president for failing to take action against extremists who are "beheading Americans and crucifying Americans."

Cotton, a former Army Ranger, has repeatedly slammed the president and Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.) for their failed foreign policy strategy to combat terrorists in the Middle East.

"We need a senator who will hold the president accountable, and make America safer," Cotton says. "I made tough decisions as an Army Ranger in Iraq, and I’ll make them again as your senator."

Recent polling shows Cotton leads Pryor by four points.
