Cornyn Visits Nacogdoches

by Donna McCollum

Each spring U.S. Senator John Cornyn visits key areas of Texas. He tells constituents he'll seek funding for their local programs, but now more of his time is spent addressing issues important to people everywhere, like the war.

"Indeed as the President likes to say, 'Freedom is on the march', for places that have only known tyranny and oppression and the worse kind of brutality we can imagine," said Cornyn to a group in Nacogdoches.

Cornyn also fully supports the President's initiative on social security. "My hope is that with the president's leadership that we can come together on a bi-partisan basis to try to solve one of the biggest problems, fiscal problems, we have in America today and create some of that truth in accounting that i know is so important."

Cornyn made several references to Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, but stayed way clear of voicing an opinion on whether or not she should run for Texas governor. "Well, I tell you what, I have friends on both sides of that potential controversy and I'm going to stay out of it. I know she's looking at that race and that's going to be up to her, but as far as I'm concerned I'm going to continue to work with her as the senior senator as long as she stays there. I think she's done a good job and Governor Perry who has done a good job in Austin as governor. Is that not getting involved or what?," Cornyn said with a laugh. There are some issues an experienced politician knows to stay away from.
