“Senator Cornyn doesn’t run away from the hard questions, and that means a lot to me,” said Green. “He’s about everyone, for all his constituents; he’s very approachable, down-to-earth, a humble person and those are the type of people we need in DC.”

“In a time where the Black community needs to know that our leaders are working for us, Senator Cornyn is reaching out, listening, and pushing to enact real change,” said Vincent Zeno. 

“I see a partner in Senator Cornyn. When I spoke to him about the need for greater access to financial capital in our Black communities, and the concern of outside investors coming in and redeveloping those neighborhoods, Senator Cornyn not only heard me — but said he wanted to do something about it,” said Leon Zeno. “That’s the type of champion Texans need in Washington.” 

Senator Cornyn accepted KHVN/Heaven 97’s invitation for a second #TXSEN debate. MJ Hegar declined.
