“Tom Cotton’s campaign ad is misleading and dishonest,” said Claire Benjamin, Managing Director of Food Policy Action. “The truth is, food stamps have been a part of the Farm Bill for decades, and this year’s Farm Bill actually cut food stamps by billions. Arkansas families deserve sensible, bipartisan leadership, not the kind of dishonesty Tom Cotton is selling in order to get elected to the Senate.”
