Amongst congressional border Republicans only McCain, Jeff Flake, Jon Kyl and Jim Kolbe are/were worse. Maybe Cornyn could fight Kay Hutchison for the title. The difference is Cornyn is taken more seriously.
"Sens. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) proposed to eventually send foreign workers home after their time in the program ended, like the Bush plan. But Kyl and Cornyn would require illegal immigrants to leave the country before applying for jobs. "
When has a congressional Republican from Texas or another border state voted for or pushed amnesty? Cornyn in 2005 was the best chance at amnesty from a border Republican. Even in 1986 very few border Republicans supported amnesty.

Are their any independents running for that seat?
I think there is a libertarian and others. Jeff Flake couldn’t get 50% because the squish liberatarian got 5 or 6%. Had a conservative been the nominee the seat would not have been at risk.
Is this how you make $$? @MarkSKrikorian: HUMANE Act would make the problem of unaccompanied alien children worse.”
Cornyn needs to learn how to cut his own lawn.
Cornyn is a Democrat fifth columnist. He deliberately threw the 2010 Senate campaign and supported three Senate candidates that became Democrats. If he was removed from the Senate, it would improve the GOP more than any other Senate seat.
