Texans Demand to Know if Senator John Cornyn is Supporting President Trump’s Fight Against Election Fraud

Is U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, Texas’ senior member of Congress’ upper chamber going to tell his constituents if he is supporting President Donald J. Trump in the fight against the 2020 Election Fraud?

As many GOP senators across the nation are experiencing, Cornyn’s office is fielding record breaking numbers of calls, email and internet contact requests asking how and if he will support President Trump. Cornyn is an important part of the Congress majority leadership.

On Wednesday, December 30, 2020, Cornyn followed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in blocking an attempt to pass the bill that would increase stimulus checks to $2,000.

Many supporters are receiving form reply messages back from Cornyn’s office similar to this:

Cornyn also voted to overturn the president’s veto of the annual defense spending bill. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz sided with Trump to sustain it.

Twelve other senators, conservatives, RINOs, and liberals joined Cruz in voting against overriding the veto.

Cornyn, who secured re-election in November, appeared on CNN last month expressing concerns about fellow Texan Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit filed with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Texas was joined by numerous state Attorneys General in the attempt to overturn election results in the battleground states Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.

“I frankly struggle to understand the legal theory of it,” Cornyn said told CNN. “Number one, why would a state, even such a great state as Texas, have a say-so on how other states administer their elections?”

“We have a diffused and dispersed system and even though we might not like it, they may think it’s unfair, those are decided at the state and local level and not at the national level,” he said.


To many Texan supporters, they interpreted Cornyn as similar to RINO Mitt Romney (UT), a frequent adversary of Trump.

Romney described the Texas lawsuit as “just simply madness. The idea of supplanting the vote of the people with partisan legislators is so completely out of our national character that it’s simply mad.”


The last straw for numerous Cornyn supporters was the Senator’s December acknowledgment that Democrat Joe Biden won Electoral College vote.


“He’s president-elect subject to whatever additional litigation is ongoing,” Cornyn told CNN. “Subject to any other litigation that could occur between now and Jan. 20 the answer is yes.”

Cruz appears to be supportive of Trump. Cornyn’s constituents don’t know if he is.

CNN’s senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju tweeted Cornyn”s statement which caused controversy within his supporter base and put a deep division between him and  other Republican Texas political leaders.

On the National Defense Authorization spending bill, Cornyn’s support helped Congress obtain their first veto override of the Trump administration.

The House of Representatives delivered the more than two-thirds of the chambers’ votes necessary to override the Trump veto. With this Senate action, the Defense budget becomes law.

The President and First Lady arrived at the White House Wednesday, cutting their scheduled holiday stay in Florida short.

The stimulus measure could come up for another vote with the new Congress, which will be sworn in on Sunday.

Texas Republicans in the House who sided with Trump’s push to increase the amount of pandemic stimulus checks to $2,000 per person included
Reps. Michael Burgess of Pilot Point, Bill Flores of Bryan, Kay Granger of Fort Worth, Will Hurd of San Antonio, Michael McCaul of Austin and Pete Olson of Sugar Land.

“As president, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people,” Trump said.

Cornyn knows Texas is Red. What gives?

Before it was overturned, the House last Monday had voted 275-134 in favor of the larger payouts – which was a rare occurance of uniting Trump with congressional Democrats.

“Giving checks to those whose income has not been affected is an affront to those whose livelihoods have been destroyed by government, and it will not change the need to safely reopen America’s economy,” Rep. Chip Roy, R-Austin, said in a news release.

Others joining Roy in voting “no” were Reps. Jodey Arrington of Lubbock, Brian Babin of Woodville, Kevin Brady of The Woodlands, Michael Cloud of Victoria, Michael Conaway of Midland, Dan Crenshaw of Houston, Louie Gohmert of Tyler, Lance Gooden of Terrell, Van Taylor of Plano, Mac Thornberry of Clarendon, Randy Weber of Friendswood and Roger Williams of Austin.

  1. I’m not a Cornyn fan. As of late, he and McConnell have pulled back their green curtain and shown who and what they truly are. Any politician that has been in office longer than one term should be viewed as a crook, and intends to use his office as a way of attaining wealth. Ted Cruz, Jim Jordan and Dan Crenshaw would be the exceptions. McConnell and his $2 K rich welfare remark and then posturing about being fiscally responsible. Well, they didn’t take jack shit from their pork funds or their special interest funding. Tar and feather them all. Did I mention that 1776 is looking better every hour.

  2. I would say this to our Senator who we voted in. We will find someone with some backbone who believes in honesty and integrity for the American people who still believes this republic is of the people, who will not sit by and allow this nation of ours to be over run by the socialist and non God fearing. This nation was formed by our Heavenly Father, remember one nation under God and you and all who follow after this lie and theft from hell will not be re-elected. We the people of this republic will vote you out, you have showed your true colors how could you turn on our President Trump when you say your a Republican. You can change your heart and do what’s right it’s not to late. My vote matters.

  3. I have received Senator Cornyn’s form letter in the past on a variety of issues. Senator Cornyn is
    very noncommittal to his constituents even after being re-elected. So disappointed.

  4. I’ve always voted Democrat in the past but the Democrat party and their off the chart Liberal policies and ideas forced me as a conservative out. So in the last election I voted against them. I voted strait Republican party. I only voted for Cornyn because it was important that I vote against the Liberal. I voted for Dwayne Stovall in the primary because I knew he would work for the state of Texas. As it turns out Cornyn is useless for the whole Republican party and the Divided States of America. He a COWARD and needs to get out of the way and let someone take his place who has guts and balls. Someone who won’t lie when they take the oath to defend the constitution. I WANT MY VOTE BACK!!!
