Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Today is a dark day for our democracy.
“The evidence was overwhelming and irrefutable. Trump betrayed our democracy, our national security, and our entire country. No party, no president, no member of Congress is above the law. The House was right to impeach Trump.
“It is the solemn duty of the Senate to seek justice, deliver a full and fair trial, and uphold the Constitution. We watched as Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn, acquitted this corrupt president and administration.
“We must change the course of American politics, and that begins right here in Texas. This is the most important election in modern history. We will defeat Donald Trump and John Cornyn.”
