David Barton and Louis Gohmert may have passed on mounting a primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn in Texas, but wingnut B-teamer Rep. Steve Stockman is in the race and going on the attack. In a letter to supporters, Stockman calls Cornyn a liberal 20 times.
You are in a foxhole fighting to save our constitutional Republic…
…and the last thing you need is a Republican bayonet in your back.
But that’s what liberal John Cornyn has been doing to you every day.
And we have less than 90 days to stop him.
I’m conservative Congressman Steve Stockman, and I am running for United States Senate against liberal John Cornyn.
I am honored to be called the most fearless conservative in Congress, and proud of my perfect 100% lifetime conservative rating.
I am leading the fight for our values. But John Cornyn wakes up every morning and works to make the Senate a more liberal place.
Remember, Cornyn was rated the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate in 2012. He has a 100% lifetime rating from the Campaign for Working Families (Gary Bauer’s group), the National Right to Life Committee and the National Rifle Association. But that makes him a liberal in the eyes of Stockman, who lists so far to the right that he’s capsized.
