Austin, Texas — Today, like the longtime D.C. politician he is, Senator Cornyn continued to play political games, twisting himself in knots to explain away his decision to break the precedent he set by confirming a SCOTUS nominee during a presidential election year, instead of focusing on helping Texas recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Texas Democratic Party Cornyn War Room Spokesperson Billy Begala released the following statement:
“Nearly 15,000 Texans have died from COVID-19 and 3.5 million Texans have filed for unemployment during the pandemic. Cornyn spent months blocking sorely-needed relief with no agreement in sight, but he’s willing to rush through a lifetime Supreme Court appointment in a matter of weeks. Cornyn is nothing more than a two-faced DC-focused career politician who will put politics above Texans.”
