AUSTIN (KXAN) — Republican Sen. John Cornyn cast his vote for the March primary election in south Austin on Thursday morning.
“I’m proud of the record I’ve been able to set in the Senate,” Sen. Cornyn told KXAN. “I’m pretty optimistic that we’re going to win but we need to make sure that we do our due diligence and we don’t take anything for granted.”
He was joined by supporters and spoke to reporters afterward at the Serrano’s at Southpark Meadows.
Sen. Cornyn’s campaign announced several endorsements last week, including Gov. Greg Abbott, President Donald Trump, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Ted Cruz.
Twelve Democrats took the debate stage on Tuesday for a chance at representing their party to unseat Cornyn.
“I’m looking forward to seeing who democrats decide to nominate,” said Sen. Cornyn. The democratic debate took place on the first day of early voting.
Sen. Cornyn faces four opponents in his own party.
