Austin, Texas — Vulnerable incumbent Senator John Cornyn, unable to run on his own abysmal record, has pathetically tried (and failed) to label his opponent, Texan mom and decorated combat veteran MJ Hegar, “Hollywood Hegar.”
As it turns out, it was Cornyn who turned to Hollywood for help with his floundering campaign. FEC reports show Cornyn has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars since July to Strategic Perception Inc., a Hollywood-based ad firm, to make his political ads.
Is anyone really surprised that D.C. John has turned to Hollywood to help him talk to Texans?
Texas Democratic Party Deputy Cornyn War Room Spokesperson Billy Begala released the following statement:
“John Cornyn has spent nearly two decades catering to DC special interests at the expense of working Texans, and because he has no record of his own to run on, Cornyn is turning to a Hollywood ad firm to come save his sorry campaign. It’d be laughable if it weren’t so pathetic.”
