John Cornyn took a lot of criticism for his handling of the NRSC, especially in the Florida race, in the 2010 cycle. Cornyn later admitted that hed made a mistake in backing Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio in an open primary, and avoided picking winners in primaries through the rest of the midterm primary season. The end result was a pickup of six seats enough, apparently, for his colleagues to unanimously confirm Cornyn as NRSC chair for another term:

Should be “my opinion.”
giving cornyn credit for repub gains in the senate is like giving a rooster credit for the dawn.
The Stupid Party strikes again.
I can sum up in five words what I think of Cornyn’s NRSC competence:
Or giving Michael Steele credit for the GOP wave of November 2010.
I hadn't realized how totally frustrated I was with the national party until I got going, and it just kept coming.
When I told my hubby, he said he hoped that this would be one of the calls "recorded for quality assurance purposes".
You should add California to that list. Larry Elder wanted to throw his hat into the ring and Cornyn kicked him to the curb in order to back Fiorina. I contend that Elder would have had a much better chance at unseating Boxer.
Furthermore, it's only by the grace of God that Specter left the GOP, or Cornyn would have backed him over Toomey.
What is the Geriatric Old Party smoking, anyhow?
Don’t forget Cornyn’s eforts on behalf of Arlen Specter...rigth before Arlen switced parties.
>> Dont forget Cornyns efforts on behalf of Arlen Specter
Yeah, that was sure money and time well spent, wasn’t it.
Lifetime ACU rating 93+.
So he missed the strength of the Tea Party this year. He knows better now.
The same guy who backed Murkowski a total liberal behind closed doors.
He spends his days wondering how he can undermine conservatives.
Who are these people?
Who cares about his rating?
Will he fight to repeal Obamacare and this disaster that is about to hit America?
No the guy felt a need to support Murkowski a total liberal who lost to a conservative in the primary.
You should know better now the goals of the establishment is about power not fighting for the will of the people.
Most of the money he had went to liberal Republicans.
If I am wrong over the next 4 years I will be pleasantly shocked.
In my opinion we have one Senator that is on our side
Jim Demint and he is being grilled by the likes of Cornyn for standing up for us.
Not sure about the new comers I hope Rubio is another.
You coulda listened guys. You shoulda listened guys. WE the PEOPLE were screaming at you, but you held your ears and sang "La, la, la!"
...John Cornyn... later admitted that he'd made a mistake in backing Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio in an open primary...
This isn’t all bad news. Just think: with “leadership” like this, it won’t be long until the GOP joins the Whig party on the trash heap of history.
I think the ACU numbers for Cornyn(and others maybe?) have been, uh, massaged. I have kept fairly close track of Cornyn's ratings by the ACU over the years and he began a steady decline about mid-way through his first term. It seemed to accelerate right after his reelection in '08, approaching lows in the low 80's as I recall. Then in just the past year he was miraculously rehabilitated. Imagine that! Of course we can't go back and check the numbers now unless someone had done screen captures or used some other means of saving the earlier data. He got into the Potomac Koolaid...FWIW.
Remember those callers from the RNC are merely paid employes. Most don’t know the names of all the people that frustrate us. They are totally ignorant, just making robot like calls. Be nice to those workers; some will soon be on the unemployment line.
I think you will find that Rubio is solidly in the “Jebbie” column.
John Cornyn is as worthless as a one-legged clothespin, a comparison actually too kind for that man’s treachery.
Let’s see...hmmm...where are some of the places Cornyn put the party’s power and money in 2008...
Any conservative that doesn’t get the picture is either being willfully blind, or they’re lying to you about being a conservative.
No dough for them.
Also, I am always a bit ticked when people get mad at you when you are a little frustrated with them when they call. I have a view of my phone as, well, my phone. I pay the bill. I did not ask the RNC Senate Committee to call me, they did that on their own. I can react in whatever way I see fit; and, if they (or you) are not happy with that, the solution is to not call me again. See, my phone.
