Alexander Bolton, The Hill

Cotton told CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday that he has “no regrets at all” and accused President Obama of “not negotiating for the hardest deal possible.” He argued that if Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are trying to drive the toughest possible deal, they would be glad to point to Cotton’s letter — which 46 other Senate Republicans signed — to gain leverage in the talks.
