I’m really surprised one of the state’s up and comers, like Todd Staples, Ken Paxton, or Dan Patrick didn’t get into the Senate primary instead of the crowded races for TX Lt. Gov and AG.
As it is now, if Cornyn is going to be defeated, he needs an opponent. Eric Wyatt might be a nice guy, but he has absolutely no money and no connections. If Louie Gohmert or Ted Poe were to challenge Cornyn, he’d be toast.
I’m surprised that Cornyn hasn’t fielded a strong challenger. He’s the Humpty Dumpty of this primary season. Having said that, maybe I shouldn’t be surprised: there’s probably a reason Cornyn’s running ads claiming to be conservative. Maybe HE knows something we don’t.
