Ken Cope Statement (Cornyn opponent)
KSAT ^ | 2/21/14 | Ken Cope

KSAT-12 reached out to Ken Cope's campaign for a statement Friday. His response follows:

I believe (Cornyn) is a failed leader. We’ve had several opportunities where he has demonstrated that – the nine time vote for basically the increase for the national debt has been a significant challenge for Texans to be able to accept. There are numerous other opportunities where he has failed as leadership. You can look at the cloture vote on Obamacare in which they were trying to suspend the financing and so on. His lack of leadership in bringing the coalition in the senate caucus together where he is supposed to be the cohesive force within that coalition he’s been the divisive force. Then he stands up with his junior senator and has an open disagreement with him in regards to how he’s going to vote tactically, turns around and says that he disagrees with the tactic of closing down the government short term and then 30 days later as the vote for the national debt increase comes along that’s exactly what he votes for. That’s called hypocrisy.

Twelve years in the United States Senate on the immigration committee and he has watched immigration go from a social problem to a national defense issue on the border. And he’s done nothing. He’s been basically just warming the seat and not standing up and fighting for Texans.

When you look at the leadership example, leaders lead by example and they do the right thing for the right reasons. When you look at the campaign finance, it’s been legal for him to accept over $10 million for the last six years even though there was not a campaign underway and he had no competitors. He did accept that money, that smells funny to Texans.

Some good points.

John Cornyn must be squirming somewhere (perhaps snuggling up to Turtle McConnell in a swamp somewhere in Kentucky).
