Published

on

Republican John Cornyn has won three U.S. Senate elections in Texas — and has also won statewide races for Attorney General and state Supreme Court.

But ahead of his 2020 reelection effort, his campaign manager is apparently worried enough about reelection to lash out at the American Conservative Union.

In response, Cornyn’s campaign manager, John Jackson, lashed out at the American Conservative Union as “the Swamp.”
