Momentum for Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is building in his Senate race against incumbent Mark Pryor (D-AR), a crucial contest that could determine the balance of power in the Senate.

On "Fox and Friends" this morning, Cotton - who's around 5 points ahead of Pryor in most polls - said that President Obama's policies are on the ballot in this election, and Pryor voted with Obama 93 percent of the time.

Arkansas wants a new direction, Cotton stated, and that's why he's looking forward to a big victory tonight.

If Republicans do take the Senate, Cotton said he hopes they can begin the serious work of solving the many problems facing our country.

Lately, more than anything, he's heard questions and concerns from people about national security.

"Americans are worried about the chaos and disorder in the world, and they don't support Obama's foreign policy of weakness and indecision and hesitation."
