Per the Texas Tribune twitter feed: Republican Party of Texas confirms that @SteveWorks4You will run against @JohnCornyn in the GOP U.S. Senate primary. Story to come. #tx2014
Cornyn is in serious trouble if he runs. His polling is as bad as Linda’s
Don’t know anything about Stockman but anyone is better than Whichever Way the Wind Blows Cornyn.
I don’t know enough about him. Is he one of those Tea Party type??
Stockman is the guy who brought Nugent to Obama’s inaugural and has been one of the leading figures in the ‘impeach Obama’ movement. Guy is solid.
He was in the forefront of the concealed carry movement when Texas got CCW in 1996. He is not afraid to express politically-incorrect positions, much like Ted Cruz.
Seems the diffident Establishment types are about to get their well groomed feathers ruffled
I have always been a stockman fan . This is good news .
Politico (apparently) confirms: Breaking: Rep. Steve Stockman has filed a primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn, Texas GOP spokesman confirms http://politi.co/cYo9Kj
This sounds hugh and series
does he have a website and facebook page up yet?
Stockman tells the WND folks, yep, it’s so:
Does this mean that if he loses the primary, he’ll also be out of the house?
I think the voters are on to Cornyn talking conservative and voting Big Government. Also stabbing conservatives in the back in the Senate cloakroom and when he chaired the NRSC.
Time to go back to whatever you were doing before you went to the Dist. of Corruption, Mr. Cornyn.
The lawmaker is risking his place in Congress because running for the Senate means he will have to give up his seat
in the House of Representatives.

It is. Stockman isn’t a nobody. He’s one of Texas’ most prominent House members and has deep roots with conservatives nation-wide. This along with the fact that there are two other candidates already running against Cornyn, means we have a good shot of keeping him under 50%. Then it’s run-off time.
Please make it so....please!!!
Those crony “moderate Republican” PACs are gonna be broke before the election at the rate conservatives are challenging their RINOs!
Here’s my vote for Stockman!!
HALLELUYAH! Stockman has some weight and can raise big money. This is VERY good news.
Okay, I can’t seem to spell any longer.
Absolutely Stockman...good, conservative man!
I think Stockman is also one who questions Benghazi Barry’s hidden background.
Wish I lived in Texas—he’d get my vote.
I will certainly be with Stockman, but I think Texans are too corny to reject Cornball.
Yes, it does; he could have been vulnerable for House reelection, but I don't know that. People in TX believe in Cornball though most don't know his record.
“Wish I lived in Texashed get my vote.”
I do. He does.
Sounds good to me
If this is indeed true, we need to put our money where are mouths are.
I know times are tough, but ten, twenty bucks...whatever y'all can afford to Stockman’s campaign.
Unseating an incumbent is very expensive. Rally round this ol boy, he'll do right by conservative folks.
Vote for Stockman with a $$ check $$.
Ok, let’s roll. Past time to retire Cornyn.
On board with you.
Whoever gets his campaign address first, ping the rest.
STOCKMAN FOR SENATE!
YYYEEEEEESSS! Broken glass!
I like Stockman, but I would MUCH rather have Rafael Cruz (Ted Cruz’s father) than anyone. There has been talk of him running. How serious? Not sure.
Paul Ryan didn’t have to give up his seat while running on the national ticket, and Joe Lieberman was reelected to the Senate at the same time he was running with AlGore. Is this a Texas law?
I think Cornyn is toast. He did it to himself. He has been far too anxious to side with Obozo on some issues that count. He was seriously on the wrong side in Syria, I wrote him and on his response, I told him that someone who blowing smoke up his ...
Years ago Stockman ran against and beat long-term Dem congressman Jack Brooks.
Rafael would not be elected, IMO.
Being so close to NASA, our schools pushed reading, math and science, very good schools. We had many bright students since so many people were involved with NASA. The school nurse at one school where I worked was the wife of an astronaut - her office was right across the hall from mine. There was just a high level of educated people there. And that is where Stockman lives.
The way Obama has stomped on NASA, I feel sure he is not popular in that area.
“Wish I lived in Texashed get my vote.”
If you have any money, vote for Stockman by sending it to him. Cornyn has big money but so did Lt. Gov. Dewhurst and Cruz, the new man, beat him.
I just read Stockman lives in Clear Lake and that isn’t in the district you have outlined as Clear Lake is south of Houston down Hwy. 45. I wonder if what I read meant he was born/raised in Clear Lake, doesn’t live there.
I don’t know where he lives. I took the TX district 36 and searched for a map.
That’s what I found. It may be outdated.
Thanks for the ping!
He does live in Clear Lake. That area was redistricted in 2010 and it hooks in the southern part to include the Clear Lake Area. That is a strange line for a district.
“Rep. Stockman serves the people of the 36th Congressional District of Texas, which was created as a result of the 2010 census and includes the counties of Chambers, Hardin, Jasper, Liberty, Newton, Orange, Polk, Tyler, and portions
of southeastern Harris County.”
“The district is home to NASAs Johnson Space Center, the research and training facility for all manned space exploration and the location of the popular Mission Control Center. As a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, Rep. Stockman highlights the importance of a vigorous space exploration program to keep the U.S. at the forefront of space technology.”
