LITTLE ROCK — Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton's campaign says he's raised $2.28 million over the last three months in his bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, outpacing the incumbent lawmaker in their increasingly heated and expensive Senate race.

Cotton's campaign announced Monday he raised the money during the fundraising period that ended June 30. Pryor's campaign on Friday announced he had raised $1.5 million during the same period.

Pryor was first elected in 2002 and is the only Democratic member of the state's congressional delegation.

Raquel Thompson, 13, says she always has had a passion for music.

For a little more than two years, she has been relying on this passion to start a career as a disc jockey.

"I want to be the person who makes people have fun," she said.

Raquel made her debut at the Bryant Parks Department’s booth at the Salt Bowl. Using only her phone, she said she played music loudly and had everyone dancing.

Eventually she provided music for about 1,000 people at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Little Rock. Since then, she hasn’t stopped.
