Allen West Insists 'Far Left' is Going After Tom Cotton
On Tuesday, former U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., doubled down on his support of U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who is looking to defeat U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., next year. Republicans across the nation have pointed to this race as crucial to flipping the Senate in 2014.
“Representative Tom Cotton, candidate for U.S. Senate in Arkansas, urgently needs our help,” West emailed supporters on Tuesday. “Tom Cotton is a great American patriot, and we would all be well-served to have him representing us in the United States Senate. That's why the Allen West Guardian Fund has endorsed him."
West bashed the “far left” for “mercilessly attacking” Cotton and insisted “with less than one year until Election Day now, I suspect their assault will only escalate.”
