SMP Statement on Texas Senate Primary Results

Washington, DC – This morning, Senate Majority PAC President J.B. Poersch released the following statement on the results of the Texas Senate primary:

“Congratulations to MJ Hegar on securing the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Texas. MJ is a decorated combat veteran and a fearless leader who is ready to take on John Cornyn and flip this seat in November.

“Texas becomes more competitive by the day and Cornyn is running scared. With his approval ratings falling, it’s no wonder he tried to meddle in this primary. Cornyn doesn’t want to face his long record of voting to take away health care as Texans grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, especially as Hegar makes this issue a focal point of her campaign.

“While the ineffective Cornyn has been siding with his party and donors at the expense of Texans – MJ has shown she’s a strong, independent voice, who is laser-focused on doing what’s best for Texas.”
