Many Texans have seen a surge of ads and social media posts from the candidates running for the Democratic Party nomination for U.S. Senate. But some of the posts and ads are coming from the Republican incumbent.
Sen. John Cornyn’s campaign highlighted a poll showing Royce West gaining ground on MJ Hegar. Cornyn’s campaign also bought air time for radio and TV advertisements painting West as being too liberal for Texas.
Hegar called the Cornyn campaign’s move to spotlight West an attack on her campaign. She suggested that Cornyn wants West to win because he doesn’t want to face Hegar in November.
The Senator laughed off the idea that he’s having an effect on the race.
“I’m not voting in the Democratic runoff, so I’m not gong to have a vote in who wins and who loses,” Cornyn told KXAN Politics Reporter John Engel.
“I think both of them are pretty much out of the mainstream of Texas values and voters,” Cornyn concluded.
