RELEASE: For Once, John Cornyn is Completely Correct, Highlights the Work of the Texas Democratic Party’s Cornyn War Room

Cornyn Fundraising Email Highlights How Texas Democrats Continue to Expose Cornyn’s Record

Austin, TX — Last week, Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn sent a fundraising mailer stating “something big is going on at Texas Democrat HQ” and “I can tell you Texas hasn’t seen anything like it.”

Well, we here at the Texas Democratic Party think Cornyn is exactly right. Our multi-million dollar Cornyn War Room has been exposing Cornyn’s abysmal record for Texans for the past year. 

Here are ten things we’ve found:

10. John Cornyn has consistently opposed the Violence Against Women Act.

9. John Cornyn has consistently voted to eliminate protections for Texans with pre-existing conditions.

8. Cornyn has taken over $1.7 million in pharmaceutical and insurance industry donations over his twenty years in Washington

7. Cornyn loves to speak in platitudes and offer up ‘plans’ that don’t actually have a solution in them. 

6. Cornyn is vehemently anti-science and refuses to reverse climate change. 

5. Cornyn has a tendency to parrot Trump talking points on twitter more than 50 times a week. 

4. Cornyn would choose to build a stupid wall that Texans don’t want over money to defend our troops. 

3. Cornyn is consistently the weakest statewide politician in Texas. The last six polls in a row have his approval rating between 25-37%. Underwater!

2. When it comes to coronavirus, Cornyn’s response has been a dog-whistling, race-baiting sprint to the bottom of the Trump barrel. 

1. Cornyn is known as Affordable Care Repeal’s “top salesman” and will stop at nothing until he reduces healthcare in the state with the worst healthcare coverage in the country. 

Texas Democratic Party Communications Director Abhi Rahman issued the following statement:

“John Cornyn is exactly right: something big is going on at the Texas Democratic Party. Our Cornyn War Room has been tailing Cornyn for the past year, ensuring that Cornyn’s abysmal record for everyday Texans is exposed to the general public. It’s working: Cornyn is weak, vulnerable, and has the lowest approval rating of any statewide politician in Texas.

“Our work doesn’t stop here. John Cornyn’s days are numbered. Texans are looking for somebody who will fight for them, not fight for big money interests and Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell in Washington. Texans will vote Cornyn out in November. Check soon for more Cornyn War Room updates.”
