Senator Cornyn Comments On Cruz Runoff Victory

John Cornyn, member of the United States Senate.
Senator John Cornyn watched the Texas Senate race with interest, as Ted Cruz defeated Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst for the Republican nomination.

If Cruz wins the November election, Senator Cornyn has this advice — remember to work well with others.

"The Senate, as any authoritarian body would be, depends on people's ability to persuade and to achieve consensus and to get a majority vote in order to make policy. So it's a little different job, and I know Ted understands that and appreciates that."

Cruz faces former Texas state representative Paul Sadler, the winner of the Democratic runoff, in the November election.
