John Cornyn gets a primary opponent.

From the Houston Chronicle

==========================

AUSTIN – Lawyer Linda Vega announced Wednesday that she is challenging U.S. Sen. John Cornyn in the Republican primary.

The Weslaco native took square aim at D.C. in her Houston announcement:

“When I look at D.C., I see failure, after failure, after failure. We have politicians from our own state who feel so entitled to their political position that one week they tell you they are for something, but the following week they are against the same thing that they supported. But then that’s what they do over there. In Washington, D.C., all their failure and political bickering makes you wonder which one is the Republican and which one is the Democrat, because they both waste your money and have caused Congress to fail.”

Her website says she owns a law firm and volunteers in Houston at events including those hosted by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. It says her areas of legal expertise are in immigration, labor, and employment law.

Cornyn Campaign Manager Brendan Steinhauser said in a statement, “As the 2nd most conservative Senator in America, Sen. Cornyn looks forward to discussing his record and welcomes Ms. Vega into the race.”

3. he still does not have a Democratic opponent

I'd love to see one of the Castro brothers throw their hat in the ring. If we don't get a good, high-profile candidate, you can kiss the Senate (in Texas) goodbye for another six years.
