EXCLUSIVE: David Barton "hasn't ruled out" Cornyn challenge
Last night, we were invited to join the Facebook group "Draft David Barton for U.S. Senate." Putting it mildly, that piqued our interest. Cahnman's Musings has spent a substantial amount of time tracking this rumor today.
According to multiple sources, last week a meeting occurred between Tea Party leaders and a representative for Barton. Sources report both sides left the meeting encouraged. Right now, speculation Barton might run is "legitimate."
This is a major development. David Barton would be an incredible U.S. Senator. In 2012, David Barton was an early supporter of Ted Cruz. Barton is a former Vice Chair of the Texas Republican Party. Currently, Barton runs "WallBuilders," a ministry dedicated to rescuing the truth about America's Judeo-Christian heritage.
As a United States Senator, Barton would be an ally of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul. Were Barton to run, his campaign would be a grassroots campaign similar to Ted Cruz's. Like Cruz, Barton wouldn't owe the establishment anything.
Cahnman's Musings encourages Barton to hop into this race. Grassroots conservatives across Texas are chomping for a Cornyn challenge. If Barton gets in, he's instantly credible.
