  •  I can't find the exact primary expenditures (1+ / 0-)

    but looking at the open secrets numbers his spending dwarfed hers, including from groups like the Club for Growth. Given how Jeffress spent basically nothing I don't think Cotton spent remotely close to all of that on the general election. Rankin spent ~450k total; Cotton got >$250,000 from just the Club for Growth. Beating a some dude of a candidate in a primary, even if they were the prior nominee (who lost big in 2010) just doesn't translate into running a competitive campaign in even the same league as one against an incumbent Democratic senator.
