Which Texas senator would you rather have as your leader?

by Amil Imani at americanthinker.com

Senator John Cornyn is a former Texas Supreme Court judge and state attorney general.  He has been a close ally of Mitch McConnell.  Even with good credentials and a good background, he is mostly referred to in Texas as a RINO or an establishment Republican who needs to be removed from office.

Cornyn’s announcement to run for the leadership of the U.S. Senate, following Mitch McConnell’s decision to step down, is news, especially in Texas.  The spin is that as the first senator to declare his intention to run for Senate Republican leader, Cornyn’s candidacy is notable for his “experience and leadership background” and “how his aim is to restore the Senate to its essential role in the constitutional republic” and a lot more about his “electoral strategy and external support.”

However, as of today, Cornyn is unsuitable for leadership for two main reasons.  For one, he did not back Attorney General Ken Paxton during his impeachment by the Texas state House.  He is also anti-Trump and anti-gun, as A.G. Paxton has already pointed out.

It is worth noting that after the fake impeachment by the “Deep State” Republicans in the Texas House (known as the UniParty) and his final acquittal in the state Senate, Paxton has become an icon, the only man left blocking Biden and his cronies from making Texas as blue and lawless as California.  His popularity has soared.
