That’s why we need him back in the Senate working for all Texans, and it’s why the Texas Association of Business FED-PAC proudly endorses the re-election of Senator John Cornyn,” said Eddie Aldrete, Texas Association of Business FED-PAC chairman.

“As our country faces many challenges and is collectively working to not just reopen our economy but return to growth and expanded opportunities for all Americans, we need leaders like Senator John Cornyn. He has a proven track record of leading responsibly and standing up for good policies,” U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas Donohue said.
