Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas is unapologetic about his interest in running for president in 2024. He has made multiple trips to Iowa and New Hampshire this year — and the year isn’t over.

In this episode, Cotton talks about his future, Trump’s impact on the future of the GOP, and where the two of them might differ (hint: they don’t agree on everything.)

    I hope that Republicans decide on one or two candidates only if Trump runs. Senator Cotton sounds like he should be one of them.

    And may they be wise enough to not let the media push them into debates on the media’s terms. I rather hope that Trump does not run. This is not because I did not like what Trump tried to do as President, but I feel that the media succeeded in making it all about his personality rather than about his policies and what was good for the country. The question, “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” should be on everyone’s mind.

    An interesting interview.  Tom Cotton is clearly one of the smartest U.S. Senators.

    Agree and agree.  Tom Cotton is a very impressive Senator.

    Great interview. He is a smart guy. If he doesn’t decide to do the presidential thing, I hope the Republicans would make him their Senate leader.
