I guess if you thought Cornyn seems a bit wishy-washy on his support for gun rights then maybe this other guy might be better option.

Cornyn is the chair of the Republican Senatorial Committee.

Good luck with that. Would be nice, though.

Long shot yes, but Senator Ted Cruz proved a Tea Party conservative can whip a entrenched rino in Texas

Beating David Dewhurst is one thing. Unseating Cornyn is a whole other ball of wax.

We all need to be tellin cornyn again, again, and again that if he supports ANY of this gun control crap - he is gone. Bye bye. Don't let the knob hit you in the ass.

I've sent him over a dozen emails and letters in the last weeks telling him exactly that.

Would be nice to send a message to the rest of the old skool (R)INO's that they need to get right or get out.

Me and Johnny boy don't get along. I follow him on Facebook and I bust him on everything I can. He brags about being the #2 most conservative but yet he is on the same list as oren hatch. I'll call bull shit right now. He brags when the Dallas paper calls him a leader for his vote on the debt ceiling debacle meanwhile his constituents are pissed as hell. He keeps shoving things that he does down our throat that we don't agree with and therefore will not receive my vote period.

Personally, I think he's been there long enough. Time for a fresh face.

He is a Washington RINO plain and simple.

It will be difficult, but it is not impossible.

He needs to go.

Did he respond with the same form letter/email each and every time? He is a waste of skin RINO.

I will be voting for any Republican that runs against him in the primary election. Time for him and others like him to find a new profession!

I think it will be easier than it was to propel Cruz over Dewhurst. Now we've seen it can be done. A conservative can beat a favored big-machine RINO. If the tea party can offer up another solid conservative in the primary, Cornyn will be beat.

The same goes for Governor Good Hair. Madina might have had a shot at one time until she stepped on her career with the Truther nonsense. For a man who no one seems to like he sure does get re-elected a bunch.

Cornyn has impressed a lot of people in DC and not that many folks in Texas. I think that it could wind up a lot like Dewhurst.

No, he's a local one, just like Dewhurst. They are the ones that the liberal Republicans in DC feel comfortable with, however.

Good on you for busting him.

I like the idea of challenging Cornyn, but based on his website, I don't think Wyatt is the man. At first it kind of looked like he was proposing the Fair Tax, but in detail it sounds more like a VAT. Also, fines for sending jobs overseas. That's not to say he wouldn't be an improvement over Cornyn, but there may be someone better. I'll keep an eye on him and hopefully my opinion of him will improve as I learn more about him.

As an admitted grammar Nazi, I wouldn't mind seeing a little proof-reading on his website either. A couple typos in an e-mail to your buddy is one thing, but I'd expect more on an official campaign website.

ETA: Does he have a facebook? I found a few Erick Wyatts, but don't know if any of them are him. Preferably a campaign facebook, as opposed to a personal one.

wganz posted on John Cornyn's FaceBook page:
Dear John,
Regarding the Senate deal on UBC. That is simply back door uniform gun registration. Write yourself a 'Dear John' letter to your senate seat if you support it.

Best regards,

He didn't used to respond at all. This is an improvement. KBH, despite being quite left wing, always got back to people, at least in my experience. And she really believed in constituent service. Her record was amazingly slim otherwise, but if you needed something done and you called her, she got on it. People put up with KBH for years despite who she was because of this. Cornyn doesn't even have that going for him.

I sent Erick Wyatt an email from the 'Contact' web page on his site today about noon.

Already got a response from him with a phone # to call to discuss any issues I want with him.

Good.. anyone who espouses true conservative values is a definite step up from Cornyn.
