United States Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) enters the final weeks of his reelection campaign with the backing of one of the nation's largest business lobbies. The senior senator from Texas received the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Friday morning.
"There's so much uncertainty about the policies emanating from Washington, D.C., whether it has to do with regulations or whether it has to do with taxes or whether it's new burdens that are placed on employers like Obamacare," Cornyn told media and supporters at the Austin headquarters of the Texas Association of Business.
Cornyn faces renewed criticism by some in the tea party after voting to block Senate colleague Ted Cruz from filibustering a vote on the debt ceiling earlier this month. Outnumbered by the Senate's Democratic majority, Republican leadership had hoped to register their opposition by voting against an increase which would nonetheless pass along party lines.
When Cruz threatened a filibuster requiring 60 votes to break, Cornyn and a handful of Republican leaders found themselves in the position of having to cast an unpopular cloture vote before the debt ceiling measure could be taken up. Although all Senate Republicans voted against raising the debt ceiling after ending the filibuster threat, Cruz called the result a "show vote."

Cornyn’s latest ad is right before a Palin trailer of her April 4 celebration.
He claims he voted against spending $1 trillion in raising debt level because it is “bad for America”
Like a lib, he has no shame
No mention of the Chamber of Amnesty endorsement on Cornyn’s Facebook pages!
He takes their Amnesty money but won’t thank them in a public forum!
This guy is unbearable.
I used to like him. I even voted for him the last time — but not this time.
Due to a commitment I have made, I am voting for Stockman, who has run weak campaign. I beleve Stovall has the fire in his belly. Either is preferable to the Cigar-Store Indian Cornyn. His actions are not commensurate with his Hollywood “looks.”
“in the position of having to cast an unpopular cloture vote before the debt ceiling measure could be taken up.”
“Having to”? Did the Corrupt Crony Chamber of Commerce and Obamanoid insurance industry demand it?
Cornyn makes me sick!
Voting Stovall here..Stockman just kinda has no “there” there...
