The Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival is a must-attend political event that almost all the statewide candidates head to in an election year.

It’s fun to watch the candidates let their guard down and make themselves look a little silly wolfing down tomatoes.
You don't need to know much more than that to know where Cotton's loyalties lie.
