Skip to comments.John Cornyn crushes Steve Stockman as Texas votes
Posted on 03/04/2014 7:18:32 PM PST by Innovative
We wish Senator Cornyn [the] best of luck in November and urge everyone to vote for, volunteer for and support the whole Texas GOP ticket, Stockman tweeted just after The Associated Press called the race for Cornyn, with only about 2 percent of precincts reporting.

Cornyn is a NoGoodnik.
I thought TX wanted change? By voting for Cornball, Patrick and Bush, we are just handing it over to the Dems.
i guess i don’t get texas either.
Stockman, I’m not sure what the hell you were doing here, but you have hurt our cause. Your campaign was a non-existent joke, and this win will only embolden Cornyn to become more of a RINO. You’ve given up a House seat to someone who is less conservative than yourself. If this was about paying off debts, I hope you enjoyed defrauding people.
Guys, bad weather is not going to help us. You want to win in races like Mississippi and Kentucky, this crap is not going to cut it.
Cornhole is rejected by 41% of republicans!! He is a joke. He is a Rockefeller liberal. He sucks!!
0 probably has the voting machines rigged for his Democrat buddies
This article was written before the First person voted in Texas on March 4, as an attempt to reduce the turnout.
I don’t know what the definition of “crush” is, but let’s see the results tonite.
If Stockman gets 20% of the vote with his level of spending, the GOP rinos should be quaking.
Overcrowded races only help incumbents.
We’re going to have to do better than people like Stockman if we’re ever going to get rid of the RINOs.
And a lot of so-called Conservatives did everything they could to discourage people from voting for Stockman. He wasn't what we needed.
Well, have fun with Cornyn.
Cornyn hasn’t voted for amnesty since 2005. When he has to pull the trigger on amnesty he wimps out because his ideas are stupid and DeMint, Sessions and Vitter tear them apart. He had 7 million and was probably going to win a runoff by getting Vega’s votes.
In 2010, McCain and Murkowski survived as the worst RINOs but other RINOs lost races in open seats and Bennett got taken out.
This is how the media spins it.
But professional politicians see: “Cornyn Barely Avoids Runoff By Skin Of His Teeth”.
It took us a while to find “our Cruz”. We had to weather many elections with KayHutch before we were fortunate enough to be blessed with Ted Cruz.
Cornball’s war chest was very powerful and we didn’t have another candidate with an organized and well funded campaign.
I think Cornball got a wake up call, if nothing else.
Jim should have zotted you the other day when he told you to KMA.
Texas is what it is. Conservatives hope a little too much in it. A lot of one on one accepting of the pushy hey speak spanishers, ESP among corporate store managers and shopkeepers. A lot of blasé not to say its bad, but Texas is not going to do it all. Can’t
And lofo lives here, just like everywhere else. Cornyn is a familiar name
Tons of California transplants Barrages of well produced radio ads (cornyn) on talk/conservative radio
He’s an incumbent
And Cruz is special Not everyone is like him. And he IS. A Texan. Probably couldve been crushed in a lot of other states
Cruz worked on getting legislators in, sending out recommendations on them. Stayed out of this race.
Careful what you ask for. But I don’t think he found it proper to get involved.
The explanation is simple: Cruz is the aberration. Cornball et al are the norm.
I disagree; I think Cornball will be more arrogant and liberal than ever.
No offense, but our country passed the point of a political solution in November of 2008. That really was the point of no return. It’s why I bought my place in central, rural KY two weeks before the election.
Oh, and I thought McCain was gonna win...
what is the problem with Patrick?
And that’s why I’m hiding in a little Revolutionary War fishing village on the Georgia coast where the nearest traffic lights are 15 miles south of me, 40 miles north and 35 miles west.
FUDGE!!!!! Damn damn!!
I really am disappointed especially with George P.
Cornporn got over 60%..... I thought we’d get him in a runoff at least. Makes for a bile taste in the mouth..
Cornyn hasn't crushed anything.
Look at the source to see where the spin comes from.
I like Cruz, and I like Cornyn...lifelong Texan here
There was no Cruz in this race. I was hopeful for a runoff, but this one was pretty clear awhile ago. In this process, we win some and lose some and pick our battles. I know a lot texans were hopeful, but no one had the skills or money to take on a high ranking incumbent. I lost faith in Cornyn in 2010 when he supported Crist in the Florida primary with party money. He’s definitely in the tank for Washington moderates. That said, there are worse guys out there and beatable guys this year. We have to narrow our effort and money to the two or three we can unseat, of McConnell, graham, Roberts, Cochran and our friend in Tennessee we need to knock off two to make progress. Three would be huge. We have to observe realistically which ones are possible and pool resources.
That’s the thing with Boehner being primaried by 3 candidates.
There is no runoff.
At least if Boehner only wins with 30,40 or 50% of the vote it allows a coalition for third party in some districts to sacrifice the seat for 2 years.
Sorry Stockman...but let’s eat the Dems, not each other.
Very disappointed that the TEA Party didn’t come up with at least one strong contender for Cornyn’s seat. But he’s been bragging in his TV ads that he’s been fighting Obama...a lie, of course... and people who aren’t paying attention actually believed him.
Stabbing Cruz in the back was the last straw on Cornservaturd —all I needed to know. He’s gone Faux.
So, do you think Pryor (Ark.) is a goner or a sure thing?
Running merely as a Tea Party candidate and calling the establishment RINOs isn't going to win elections. You've got to sell your message to the voters and be passionate about it.
Although I despise Rove, I understand the premise of his message in that Republican candidates got to understand the issues.
Not if Brian Babin wins the seat! He's in a runoff.
Babin is the father of a Navy Seal and F-I-L of FOX News' Jenna Lee.
Amen. I cast 3rd Party against McCain and can easily rinse and repeat, certainly with Cornyn.
Rasmussen 2/4 - 2/5 500 LV 45 40 - Cotton +5
Harper (R-American Crossroads) 1/26 - 1/27 533 LV 42 36 22 Cotton +6
Cornyn hasn't crushed anything. He's squeaking by, and only 41% of precincts are reporting.
Tom Cotton Gains Ground Over Mark Pryor in New Poll
A new poll shows Rep. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) is gaining ground in his effort to unseat Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Arkansas), thecitywire.com reports.
Cotton received 46 percent support from 1,202 poll respondents, while Pryor received 42 percent.
The poll was conducted on Feb. 12 by the Little Rock-based Impact Management Group. In an Oct. 24 poll conducted by the same group, Cotton received 43 percent support, and Pryor received 41 percent.
Low info voters strike again. Thanks to them, we get cornyn again and another George Bush to boot.
How are our chances. I heard Pierson lost big. That sucks
I agree. Cornyn runs free now, to pal up with the Amnesty pushers set to turn TEXAS blue.
Cornyn expects to pander with the best of them. The ball got rolling tonight, on blue, with his re-election and with George P. Bush coming up the ladder.
Oops beat not eat. Typing on my tablet.
well, i guess my only take from afar is that sadly barnum has it covered: i.e., that cornyn and the GOPe apparently can fool part (~60%) of texas republican voters *all* of the time.
