Skip to comments.John Cornyn is best Republican for Texas in U.S. Senate
Posted on 02/03/2014 7:17:31 AM PST by jimbo123
Despite a crowded field of Republicans seeking to unseat U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, voters are well-served to support him for a third term.
Within a decade of his first election, Cornyn emerged as a party leader in the Senate, quickly climbing to the position of minority whip a role in which he wields tremendous influence in the 100-member body.
While several of his primary opponents articulately express what they see as Cornyns complacency in supporting an all-too-powerful federal government, none can be considered a serious challenger.
The seven candidates seeking to unseat Cornyn are hotel industry executive Curt Cleaver; aerospace consultant and retired Army officer Ken Cope; small-business owner Chris Mapp; retired Air Force officer Reid Reasor; Houston-area U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman; business owner Dwayne Stovall and immigration attorney and small-business owner Linda Vega.
Their respective platforms vary in depth and focus, but their ideological underpinnings are largely indistinguishable. Each opponent sees Cornyn as an impediment to the restoration of constitutionally limited government.
These concerns are misplaced on a candidate with high-caliber conservative credentials.

My bullshit meter just exploded.
This, from the Leftist rag that is Ft Worth’s paper.
I promised that bastard via a phone call that I would do whatever it took to get him retired, after he voted for cloture.
I'm not the only one that feels that way.
We need more citizen politicians and fewer professional politicians like Cornyn
This is the kind of thing to expect from the Startle-gram
Yes. Guess they want to get started early. Wonder what he paid them for this “advertisement.”
Exactly right. We have GOT to stop rewarding these wolves-in-R-clothing with election wins. Cornyn has to go.
No doubt every Democrat newspaper in Texas, which is every big-city paper in Texas, will endorse their buddy Cornyn, which is why he needs to be thrown out in the primary. Their little lying skank, Windy Davis, got caught piling up the BS, so now they have to help their GOP faves.
Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Lincoln Chafee, Lisa Murkowski.
John Cornyn. No Thanks!
You’re NOT the only one...I feel the SAME way about Cornpone.
His cloture vote was the final nail in his slimy, career-politician coffin, for me, too.
NO THANKS, FWST/leftist rag.
Not a Texan, but I have seen Stockman get smeared mightily, so I would favor him.
I can’t leave a comment, at link, as they only accept FB comments.
The two comments (at this time) are telling. No love for Cornball.
John Cornyn is the “best” Republican for Texas in the way that George McClellan was the “best” general to lead the Army of the Potomac.
Cornyn is the worst possible person for that job. He is worthless. May he be retired and not re-elected.
Don’t forget that he spent a ton of time and energy stabbing TED CRUZ in the back.
Cornyn also voted to confirm Hanoi John Kerry as Secretery of State and that asshat Chuck Hagel as SecDef.
I wouldn’t vote for Cornyn as State Dog-catcher if TEXAS were over-run with Chihuahuas. He is finished in my book.
Right now I am trying to choose between STEVE STOCKMAN or DWAYNE STOVALL. I really like both men.
I have to laugh at his ads that try to suggest that he has not been in the SENATE for the past 11 years and isn’t the sitting SENATE MINORITY LEADER.
Does he really think that we TEXANS are that damned stupid?
