John Cornyn (born February 2, 1952 in Houston, Texas) is the senior, moderate United States Senator from Texas and a leading RINO Backer as a member of the Republican Party. Although somewhat conservative a half-decade ago,[1] Cornyn today is little more than a puppet for liberals in the Republican Party. He currently serves on the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, Budget Committee, Finance Committee, and Judiciary Committee. Cornyn is chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and pulled $5 million in spending out of the toss-up Missouri race for U.S. Senate in 2012 because pro-life Todd Akin spoke out too much for the unborn.

In 2017 Cornyn holds the #2 position in the U.S. Senate, called the "Majority Whip."

Cornyn is a graduate of Trinity University and St. Mary’s School of Law (both in San Antonio) and earned a Masters of Law from the University of Virginia Law School. He would go on to get elected district court judge in Bexar County. In 1990 Cornyn was elected to the state Supreme Court. In 1998 he was elected Texas' Attorney General. After Republican Senator Phil Gramm announced his retirement Cornyn entered the race to succeed him, and defeated the Democratic nominee, Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk. He was overwhelmingly re-elected in 2008.

In 2014, he defeated conservatives Steve Stockman and Dwayne Stovall in the Republican senatorial primary for a third six-year term.
