Cornyn says he broke with Trump on deficit, border wall, but kept opposition private

..the senior Republican senator from Texas, who is being challenged by Democrat MJ Hegar, said he chose to work on those disagreements with the president’s staff in private discussions, rather than by publicly voicing his opposition.

Although polls show Cornyn with a small lead over Hegar, both candidates are vying for undecided voters during an extraordinary election season in which many once-solid Republican public office seats are now in reach for Democrats.

Cornyn initially described his relationship with Trump as “maybe like a lot of women who get married and think they’re going to change their spouse, and that doesn’t usually work out very well.”

“But when I have had differences of opinion, which I have, (I) do that privately,” Cornyn said. “I have found that has allowed me to be much more effective, I believe, than to satisfy those who say I ought to call him out or get into a public fight with him.”

What an incredibly misogynistic way of saying "I'm a coward". I sincerely hope Hegar runs with that.

5. Don't you think your constituents would care if you shared publicly???

You and Ben Sasse can have a partyline over your grave, but private concerns..... maybe invite Susan from Maine she has grave concerns.....

7. Opposition by secrecy? What good is it? Like a private, quiet resistance? He's trying to steal

credit for something that may, or may not, have happened. I don't believe him.

9. Too little, too late. And total BS to boot.

I suspect we'll be getting a lot of this as Trump goes out with a whimper.

11. "... that has allowed me to be much more effective" Effective?

He's been on the wrong side of everything, capitulating to trump!

This is a cheap excuse for total incompetence.

14. cornhole didn't do shit. he's panicking because Hegar is hot on his heals.

like a typical rebuke, he's an opportunist when it comes to saving his own skin.

he weighed the odds looked at the polsl and thought it safe to do a little orange asshole bashed (after he found out that being a sycophant to the orange asshole wasn't working) to try and get him some traction in the poles.
