Austin, Texas — A new Daily Kos/Civiqs poll has found combat veteran and working mom MJ Hegar in a virtual tie with vulnerable incumbent Senator John Cornyn.
The poll also found Cornyn’s approval rating continues to be underwater:
It’s no wonder Sen. Cornyn finds himself neck-and-neck with MJ. Cornyn has spread disinformation about the COVID-19 crisis, questioning the efficacy of masks as recently as last weekend, has given up on delivering desperately-needed COVID relief for struggling Texas workers and small businesses, and is instead focused on rushing through a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court in an attempt to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and its protections for people with preexisting conditions via his allies’ lawsuit.
Texas Democratic Party Cornyn War Room Spokesperson Billy Begala released the following statement:
“Texans are fed up with John Cornyn putting DC politics over the lives and livelihoods of hardworking Texans, and are fixing to send Cornyn into retirement.”
