Republican Rep. Steve Stockman Launches a Primary Challenge Against Fellow Texan Sen. John Cornyn
Republican Rep. Steve Stockman is launching a primary challenge against fellow Texan Sen. John Cornyn.
The Senate’s second-ranking Republican, Cornyn is up for re-election next year.
Stockman, a tea party favorite, told WND that he decided to challenge Cornyn in part because he “undermined” fellow Texan Sen. Ted Cruz’s fight to derail Obamacare.
“And now, it looks like Cruz was right and Cornyn was wrong. He [Cornyn] sided with the President, essentially, in making sure Obamacare became law while Cruz did everything possible to stop it,” Stockman said.
Texas Republican Party spokesman Spencer Yeldell confirmed reports that Stockman withdrew his application for his congressional seat and filed papers to run in the Senate race.
