"By electing Tom Cotton you are going to see a different direction in America," said Romney.
The 2012 republican presidential nominee joined Congressman Cotton in North Little Rock this morning.
Romney endorsed Asa Hutchinson for Governor on Wednesday.
It's part of his push to elect more republicans to state and federal office.
"I don't think the president or Harry Reed understand what it takes to get this economy going and get people back to work. They've had their chance for the last six years and their recovery has just not done the job for the people of Arkansas."
Romney also weighed in on Arkansas's private option health care plan saying while he opposes the federal law, he likes that the state took action itself.
