His campaign announced Thursday that nearly 40 leaders from both political parties are endorsing Cornyn. Earlier this year he announced about three dozen endorsements from South Texas elected officials and civic leaders.

Among those backing Cornyn are Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez, Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West and Hidalgo City Councilman Siglinde Franz.
