I am working on a small project using Beautiful Soup.
How would I access the phone number of this :

<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="mlr__item__cta jsMlrMenu" data-phone="709-635-7316">
I tried this, but not working...

co_phone = each_co.find(class_="mlr__item__cta jsMlrMenu" "data-phone")
Did you check the docs?

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

html = '''<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="mlr__item__cta jsMlrMenu" 
data-phone="709-635-7316">some tetxt</a>'''
soup = BeautifulSoup(html, 'html.parser')
atag = soup.find(class_="mlr__item__cta jsMlrMenu")
