Senator Cornyn

VIDEO: Cornyn: ‘Cutting and Running’ Not Very Texan

July 14, 2021

WASHINGTON – Today on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed Texas Democrats’ decision to skip out on the Texas legislature’s special session and come to Washington, D.C. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s interview are below, and video can be found here.

“It’s kind of weird, Dana, to see a bunch of Texans coming up here and asking for Chuck Schumer’s blessing.”

“They need to go do their job. That’s the way democracy works.”

“You’re not guaranteed to win every single vote, but you are responsible to show up, and cast your ballot, and debate the issues. If you don’t win, then you try to come back another day, persuade more people that you’re right, win the next election, get a majority. Come back and change and actually do what you wanted to do, but cutting and running is not a Texas virtue.”
