It's not a secret that Cahnman's Musings would like to see a primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn; the question is who will do it. We've proposed having Senator Ted Cruz's father Rafael and Tea Party Superstar Katrina Pierson take this challenge. Today, we have another idea.
How about former Texas State Rep. Wayne Christian?!?
The most important thing for grassroots Texans to understand about Wayne Christian is that the leadership of the Texas State House hates his guts; in fact, they hate him so much that they redistricted him out of his seat in 2011.
In other words, Wayne Christian already has a long record of confronting clowns on the Republican side of the aisle; willingness to confront Republican 'leadership' is one of the biggest things we need more of in Washington.
Similar to Katrina, Wayne Christian would enter this race with credibility and name recognition. He's been through the ringer before, so he knows how to run a general election campaign. If Wayne Christian had skeletons in his closet, Joe Straus would have dug them up by now.
As we wrote back in April:
John Cornyn is a nice guy. That's the problem. Nice guys like John Cornyn, who lack the internal fortitude to defeat this President (or any potential 2016 successor), are why the Republican party keeps finishing last. John Cornyn voted for TARP. John Cornyn voted for the 2011 Debt Ceiling deal. John Cornyn voted for the Fiscal Cliff Senators never improve in third terms.Someone needs to step up, preferably someone with campaign experience; Wayne Christian would be a darn good choice.
