Trump Backs Cornyn for Re-Election to Senate

President Donald Trump has issued his endorsement for a Texas Republican facing re-election next year.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted in support of John Cornyn, Texas’ senior U.S. Senator. Cornyn is running for re-election in 2020, and has only drawn one challenger, independent Dwayne Stovall, as of this article’s publication.

In his tweet, Trump praised Cornyn on issues like veterans’ affairs and the Second Amendment, and said the Republican has his support for re-election.

“He is strong on Crime, the Border, the Second Amendment and loves our Military and Vets,” Trump wrote. “John has my complete and total endorsement.”

Voters will decide Texas’ U.S. Senate race next November.
