Sen. Roger Wicker says GOP colleague John Cornyn of Texas will win his primary (on MSNBC)
Washington Times ^ | 2/18/14 | Tom Howell Jr.

Posted on 02/18/2014 6:05:13 AM PST by jimbo123

Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn’s bid for re-election got a boost this week from a GOP colleague and one of the top newspapers in his state.

Mr. Cornyn, Texas Republican, will try to defend his seat against seven opponents in the party primary on March 4. He is taking heat from conservatives for supporting a procedural motion last week that cleared the way for an up-down vote to extend the nation’s borrowing authority, even though he voted against the actual measure.

But Sen. Roger Wicker, Mississippi Republican, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that voters will still come out in droves for Mr. Cornyn “for a variety of reasons,” even if tea party types are upset with him.

Mr. Cornyn’s most vocal challenger is Rep. Steve Stockman, an outspoken conservative who has accused Mr. Cornyn of being a liar for how he portrayed his debt limit votes.

A moron who has never been and never will be conservative, circling the wagons on the Morning Shmoe. I hope he’s ready to say goodbye to his buddy Thad Cochran.

Here is 'bewitching coverup':

If MS-NBC was a real news service, and am not saying it is,
at least one reporter would have asked Cornyn where the
money went which he stole AFTER attacking Ms. O'Donnell.

NRSC Raised Money Using Christine O'Donnell's Name the Day Before Delaware Primary

More and more liberal Republicans in the senate and house are resembling a “mischief” of rats on an ever shrinking island in a flooding river. As the waters rise, one at a time, another one is swept away to his demise, despite the best efforts of the others to hold onto him.

Lets not forget his 3 state pensions, for 3, 6, 7 year jobs along with his congressional salary that does not include the perks, committee pay, or travel, or Platinum healthcare cost we tax SERFS pay for. http://trailblazersblog.dallasnews.com/2013/06/sen-john-cornyn-discloses-3-texas-pensions-as-supplemental-income.html/

ditto for Tennessee, with liberal rino lamar alexander 73, he has a conservative state Rep Joe Carr running against him, so he has a voting record you can match against lamar’s which is to many times along dem lines.

Wicker is a distant cousin of one Fred Thompson, “R”-TN, whom some here once thought was “presidential”, but he never had the fire in the belly.

Has Trent Lott predicted Cornball and Cochran victories too?

Some think that McDaniel, because of likely low turnout, has the best chance of all the conservative insurgents running this year.

Wicker decided to vote against amnesty after his staffer was upset at all the angry calls.

He went on local radio and said he still wants to bring them out of the shadows.

I am always surprised when RINO’s think that a liberal rag endorsement helps their campaign

Yep, should have pinged LLS. You two are my Mississippi heroes! Sure wish ole teddy Roosevelt would mind his own business with #2 suckup in the Senate, John McCornholiyo back in my home state of Texas and leave us alone.

Yes, Theodore, I am talking about you and your stalking of Mississippi election threads.

Please sir, work as diligently to rid this nation of John 'Wayne' Cornyn and his ilk.

Latest ads in Texas: "John Cornyn stands up to Obama every single day! He will Never back down!"

BARF!
