Cotton also went silent when ABC came calling. Moore has no senators backing his candidacy.
KNWA/KFTA reached out to Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, about the Alabama election, and his office didn't return any requests for comment.
The New York Times reports Cotton is one of three senators who haven't publicly commented on the allegations. The other two are Thad Cochran, R-Mississippi and Rand Paul, R-Kentucky.
And I do not know why I or any other follower of the gospel of Jesus should believe white evangelicals are followers of Jesus who support Donald Trump, Roy Moore, and the policies and practices associated with them.UPDATE: Wednesday afternoon, one of the few Arkansas reporters with whom Cotton will talk, Frank Lockwood of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Tweeted this Cotton quote: “I haven’t supported him, I don’t support him, and I can’t urge Alabama voters to support him.”
What is clear, however, is that there are people – in Alabama and elsewhere throughout the United States – who profess belief in democracy while supporting politicians such as Donald Trump and Roy Moore, persons whose personal and professional histories are defined by bigotry and other forms of oppression towards vulnerable people, including women and girls.
And, it is clear that Donald Trump, Roy Moore, and their white “evangelical Christian” supporters are determined to return the United States to an era when white patriarchy, white supremacy, and white nationalist militarism were the defining features of every level of government (local, state, and national) in the United States.
