Sen. John Cornyn of Texas received the support of President Donald Trump on Thursday as he gears up for a challenging reelection campaign following the state’s expensive and closely contested Senate election in November.
Trump tweeted that “Senator John Cornyn has done a tremendous job for the people of Texas.” “He supports our military and veterans and is a strong voice on crime, the border, and the Second Amendment. John has every single one of my support. RENEW THE GREATNESS OF AMERICA!
After Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) came dangerously close to losing the 2018 midterm elections in what was also the most costly campaign in the history of the nation, Cornyn started his preparations for the 2020 race sooner than other senators. More campaign money has already been raised by Cornyn ($5.8 million) than by any other senator running for reelection.
Beto O’Rourke, a former congressman from Texas, came close to defeating Cruz in November. Additionally, two Republicans who were elected to Congress fell to Democrats in previously safe districts. Additionally, the Republican counties that Cornyn relied on during his last reelection campaign are shifting more toward the blue. These counties surround the suburbs of Dallas and Houston.
O’Rourke, who is seriously exploring a presidential bid, hasn’t ruled out taking against Cornyn in the race for the Senate.
