The founder and director of a grass-roots conservative group said he expects Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, to face a primary challenge. Cornyn is up for re-election in 2014.
â€œI donâ€™t know how good of a primary challenge he is going to get at this point, but he will get a primary challenge,â€ said Dean Wright, co-founder and director of New Revolution Now, based in Austin, Texas.
â€œThere is vetting going on,â€ Wright said, but he did not have any other details. He noted that one possible challenger could be Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is viewed as much more likely to run for governor in 2014. Abbott and Cornyn are known to have a cordial relationship, with Cornyn once touting Abbott as a possible Senate candidate.
â€œHe would, if he did run, most likely bring in the tea party and the conservative grass roots behind him,â€ Wright said, adding that his group would likely support Abbott.
Abbot came to the national stage in 2005 when he defended before the U.S. Supreme Court, and won, the right of the state to display a Ten Commandments monument on the state capitol grounds.
