A Democratic challenger to Arkansas incumbent GOP U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton may have emerged.
Talk Business & Politics has confirmed that 2018 Third District Democratic Congressional candidate Joshua Mahony of Fayetteville has had multiple conversations in-state and with national groups about a bid to run against Cotton in 2020. Mahony says he is contemplating a run.
