Appearing on Breitbart Radio, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton credited President Trump for Republicans outperforming expectations in both Senate and House races in the 2020 election.
Cotton said “we had smashing victories in the Senate. It was predicted by the media and the Democrats we would lose control of the Senate, perhaps in a landslide. In the House, Kevin McCarthy and House Republicans [were predicted] to lose 10 or 20 seats. They ended up gaining about 15 seats. It’s going to be the narrowest majority of modern times.”
“Then you look at the state legislatures like in Arkansas,” Cotton bontinued “I didn’t think it was possible, but we became even more Republican in Arkansas. We beat two Democratic state senators. We’ve flipped a handful of state legislative chambers. The Democrats — after four years of Eric Holder wasting millions of Democratic donors’ money to try to flip legislatures to gerrymander the House — did not pick up a single legislative chamber.”
“We had all these victories not in spite of Donald Trump, but because of Donald Trump,” he added.
