TOMATO TIME: Mark Pryor won't let go of Cotton's snubbing of the Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival. SEARK Today

OK, Extremist Republican Tom Cotton should have gone to the Pink Tomato Festival in Warren instead of rubbing elbows with Kochs and their ilk at a posh California resort.

This is ridiculous. From the Pryor campaign:

LITTLE ROCK — Today, community leaders from Bradley County will participate in a conference call with reporters to discuss Rep. Tom Cotton’s decision to skip the annual Pink Tomato Festival, choosing instead to attend a secretive luxury retreat in California hosted by the out-of-state billionaires funding his campaign.

A spokesperson for Pryor’s campaign will moderate the discussion and provide previously unreported details about the historic billionaire summit.

A new television ad this week highlights how on June 16,rather than attending one of his congressional district’s most important annual festivals, Congressman Cotton jetted off to southern California’s St. Regis Resort to play golf and dine on filet mignon with the special interest billionaires funding his campaign.

WHO: Bradley Co. community leaders and Pryor campaign spokesman

WHAT: Discussion and Q&A about Congressman Cotton’s conspicuous absence from the Pink Tomato Festival.

WHEN: Friday, July 18 at 2:00 p.m. CT

Can we move along? There are greener issues to fry.
