New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie joined two other Republican governors and one former GOP governor on a stop in Jonesboro, Ark., Friday morning to support Senate candidate Tom Cotton (R) and gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson (R) and encourage residents to vote and make sure their friends voted.

Christie said he was there  to give voters a "kind, calm reminder that Asa needs your vote on Tuesday," drawing laughs for poking fun of his own brash persona with his emphasis on "kind" and "calm."

Cotton, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor (D), emphasized his busy schedule in the final days of the campaign.

"We're traveling this state," he said, adding that he hadn't found anyone who sides with President Obama for 93 percent of the time. Cotton's campaign ads have tied Pryor to Obama through his voting record. "I've got to go all the way to Washington, D.C., to find the one Arkansan who agrees with Obama 98 percent of the time," Cotton said.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour were also at the event, held at the second floor of Sue's Kitchen.

Barbour told attendees they needed to talk to friends at football games and at church this weekend and encourage them to vote. "It doesn't make a difference who you favor if you don't vote," he said.
