Cotton State

My article on Tom Cotton, the Republican Senate candidate in Arkansas, is in the new National Review.

If he wins, Cotton’s triumph will complete Arkansas’s long evolution from yellow-dog Democrat to red-state Republican, making it the last of the Southern states to switch its loyalty, in a realignment that started more than a generation ago. It would also give Republicans a fighting chance to take control of the Senate — they probably can’t move into the majority without a victory in Arkansas — and it could even give them a new star with a bright future in national politics.
