From the vantage point of the Republican Convention, we sat down with Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton for a broad ranging conversation on issues of the day.
An Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, he’s one of the leading critics of President Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran. He’s also a vice chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, working to keep Republicans in control of the Senate. Of the 34 Senate races this year, 24 of them are currently controlled by the GOP.
Can Republicans hold the Senate? And what’s the future of U.S. foreign policy? We covered these and other important subjects with Senator Cotton when he joined The Atlantic’s Washington Editor at Large, Steve Clemons.
