LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Political Analyst Bill Vickery and Jessica DeLoach break down our Political Plays of the Week. This week's included what some are calling an "excessive amount" of ads from Tom Cotton. Cotton recently released 5 new ads on t.v. Various polls have had Republican Tom Cotton behind opponent Republican Mark Pryor for the U.S. Senate Seat. Bill Vickery had this to say about the polls, "Polls before Labor Day are irrelevant". Vickery also commented that typically in the Arkansas political scene summer is a time for the politicians to relax and take a break from campaigning, in which this case Cotton is not.

Many have claimed this race to be the most expensive Senate race in Arkansas history.

Another big topic is the runoff for the Attorney General's Republican Party Nomination. Currently Leslie Rutledge and David Sterling are head to head for the GOP Nomination. Whomever wins will face Democrat Nate Steel in November.

Jessica DeLoach mentioned an outside source funded a nearly $300,000.00 ad on the "Stand Your Ground Law". She said, "It seems as if they are trying to say the female candidate in this race is soft on crime, and I think that is a really terrible message to portray".
