WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, will begin his campaign for a fourth term with hefty campaign funds. 

Cornyn had $5.8 million in cash on hand at the beginning of this year, according to his campaign. In the latest reporting period — between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 — Cornyn raised $491,000. 

It’s unclear if Democrats will nominate a candidate who can seriously threaten the seat, but any Cornyn challenger will have to scramble to match the millions Cornyn banked during the off-cycle years of his third term. 

But it’s not impossible, and Cornyn is clearly taking little for granted. A previously unknown then-U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, came within three points of toppling U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in November, swamping the incumbent with record-breaking fundraising. 

“This strong showing is demonstrative of Senator Cornyn’s widespread support from Texans across the state,” Cornyn campaign manager John Jackson said in a statement. “The national Democratic Party is coming to take Texas and Senator Cornyn isn’t going to let them.” 

“U.S. Sen. John Cornyn has nearly $6 million ready for his Texas re-election campaign” was first published at by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.
