Cornyn launches statewide “Astonishing” ad

Sen. John Cornyn launched his first official television ad in his bid for reelection, Friday. The ad, entitled “Astonishing,” started airing statewide today. The :30 spot focuses on Cornyn’s opposition to the Obama administration’s policies.

“Astonishingly liberal. An Administration that has squandered our trust. Using backhanded methods to change the very fabric of American life. Who stands up to him? John Cornyn. Conservative. Pro-life. Lives the Second Amendment. Fights for truth from a dishonest Administration. He stands up to Obama every day. Pushes back. John Cornyn’s for us – for Texas.”

Wednesday, an attack ad aimed at challenger Rep. Steve Stockman started airing in the Houston area. That spot was paid for by Texans for a Conservative Majority, which supports Sen. Cornyn.

First US Senate campaign ads set to hit air

We are about to begin seeing the first US Senate campaign ads hit airwaves across Texas. As Politico first reported today, the first major ad buy is sponsored by a super PAC that supports Sen. John Cornyn. The ad, paid for by Texans for a Conservative Majority, is an attack on Cornyn’s GOP challenger, Rep. Steve Stockman.

According to Politico, the 30-second spot will first be seen in southeast Texas and Houston, which is the part of the state Stockman represents. The ad accuses Stockman of “Lies, shady deals and ethical failings in Washington” and alleges that Stockman of failed to disclose off-shore business dealings.
