So Far, Cornyn Hasn’t Drawn A Strong Primary Challenger

AUSTIN (September 7, 2013)--Some tea party and conservative grassroots activists are attacking U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, for being moderate despite what most observers agree are strong conservative credentials, but, so far, the Senate minority whip hasn't drawn a strong challenger from the right.

The filing filing deadline for the Texas Republican primary next March is Dec. 9, but so far the groups that helped unleash tea party firebrand Ted Cruz on the U.S. Senate last year can't seem to manage a second act to challenge Cornyn in the 2014 primary.

In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Cornyn said it's a testament to his staunch conservatism since arriving in the Senate in 2002, but he also said he's staying prepared, just in case.
