Republican Tom Cotton, who moved back to Arkansas from D.C. so he could go back to D.C. as a congressman from the 4th District, is boasting today about his endorsement by U.S. Sen. John McCain. Noted.
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Florida resident, earlier had endorsed Beth Ann Rankin, a former Huckabee staff member, for the 4th District seat.
For the record, in the 2008 GOP presidential primary, Huckabee got 60.5 percent of the vote and McCain got 20.2.
