Cotton moves key aide to political operation

Colas has been a central player in Cotton’s orbit, having served as his deputy chief of staff and legal counsel. Cotton called Colas a “trusted advisor and friend” in a statement, and he said he would “continue to benefit from his counsel.”

South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott has also begun to take steps to buttress his political operation ahead of a prospective 2024 bid. Jennifer DeCasper, a longtime Scott adviser, recently left his office to help guide his political activities ahead of the midterm election and to advise a newly created, pro-Scott super PAC.

Cotton earlier this week campaigned for Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who has been besieged by allegations that he paid for a former girlfriend to get an abortion. (Walker has repeatedly denied the claim, which POLITICO has not independently verified.) Cotton is weighing returning to the state to campaign for Walker again before the election.

He is also expected to travel to Pennsylvania, to boost Senate candidate Mehmet Oz, and to Iowa, where he will campaign for GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks.

Cotton has made clear that a comeback bid by former President Donald Trump would not deter him from seeking the Republican nomination in 2024. Addressing donors at a retreat in Washington this past June, Cotton said he wouldn’t defer to any other potential candidate — including Trump — and said he would make a final decision on whether to run after the midterm election.
