MJ Hegar, former congressional candidate, says she's running to challenge U.S. Sen. John Cornyn

Former Democratic congressional candidate MJ Hegar is running for U.S. Senate in 2020.

Hegar, a former Air Force helicopter pilot, mounted a high-profile bid to unseat U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, in November, fueled by attention-grabbing ads and massive fundraising. She ended up losing by less than 3 percentage points in the traditionally Republican district.

“Texans deserve a senator who represents our values, strength, courage, independence — putting Texas first," Hegar said in an announcement video made in the style of her 2018 ads. "I didn’t get a pilot slot my first time trying. We Texans don’t give up easy, and everything we’ve accomplished is just the beginning."

In the video, Hegar emphasizes Cornyn's closeness with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whom the Texas served with in leadership through last year.

1. I'll vote for her if she is the nominee,

but I think that Joaquin Castro has the advantage if he decides to run.
