Rep. Steve Stockman @StockmanSenate Follow If you're chilly tonight, huddle near John Cornyn's pants for warmth.
A tweet from Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas)s campaign Twitter account caused some followers to do a double take Thursday night, while those in on the joke prompted a chant of liar, liar, pants on fire.
Stockmans social media strategy has raised many an eyebrow with tweets that pack quite the punch, and the congressmans Senate campaign Twitter account has gained notoriety for its attacks on Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Stockmans primary challenger. Operating under the handle @StockmanSenate, the Texas conservatives campaign sent a tweet out capitalizing on the cold weather, while asserting that Cornyn is a liar, liar, pants on fire.
Stockmans campaign did not return Red Alert Politics request for comment at the time of publication.
Since his election to the House in 2012, Stockman has had quite the knack for stirring up controversy. In October, the Senate-hopeful distributed copies of a book calling for Obamas impeachment to every member of Congress. He caused a stir on Twitter during the government shutdown, saying Democrats curb-stomped veterans with the closing of Washington, D.C.s, monuments and national parks, and claimed Chlamydia was more popular than Obamacare.
After announcing his decision to primary Cornyn in October, Stockmans campaign Twitter account emerged, and his social media strategy quickly became evident. Many posts center around Cornyns votes on hot button issues like Obamacare and immigration, and his supposed alliance to President Barack Obama.
But Cornyn has fired back, taking to the airwaves to diss Stockman.
A December poll showed Cornyn had a massive lead over Stockman, with the Texas senator 44 points ahead of his challenger.

The tweet was “ If you’re chilly tonight, huddle near John Cornyn’s pants for warmth.”
Is it an allegation if it is proven true, before hand?
But, they look like such a happy couple!
Cornyn has that Monica Lewinsky thing going on in that photo.
You mean “thong”? I need to examine this closer, or... maybe not. *sigh* Bob
Yeah, but, Stockman is relying on Twitter, Facebook and e-mails. John Cornhole is running TV and Radio Ads all over Texas. Dear God, please let there be a low turnout for this Primary and let the uninformed voters NOT show up?
If Dwayne Stovall can raise money for a TV Ad, it seems like Stockman could as well. Are people giving money to the Stockman Campaign for ads and somebody is pocketing it? For Stockman to be the “main” challenger to Cornhole, he’s sure must not be raising any money.
