Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after meeting with the nominee for Secretary of the Air Force, former Congresswoman Heather Wilson:

"I have great respect for Heather Wilson. She's an accomplished public servant, and as an Air Force veteran herself, she understands the challenges of modernizing our Air Force in such a dangerous time as this. We had a very good conversation today. I was struck in particular by her strong support for upgrading the nuclear triad. All in all, she's an impressive candidate, and I look forward to supporting her nomination."
