The Executive Committee of the Lamar County Republican Party on Thursday passed the resolution for the resignation of U.S. Senator John Cornyn III for his recent votes and actions which violate the core principles of the Republican party of Texas.
In the resolution, multiple violations were listed, including voting for the $1.7 trillion dollar Omnibus Bill, repeatedly crossed over party lines to vote with the Democratic majority in procedural (cloture) votes, voted with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democrats in May 2022 to pass a $40 billion aid package to protect Ukraine’s sovereignty and borders while the U.S. and Texas southern border remain wide open for illegal immigration, illegal drug trafficking, and illegal human trafficking, and more.
As a resolution, the Lamar County Republican Party encourages “fellow Republican Party County Executive Committees, Auxiliaries, and conservative groups across the state of Texas to pass this, or a similar resolution, in demonstration of the widespread dissatisfaction with Senator Cornyn’s lack of fidelity to our founding principles, our national and state constitutions, and the Republican Party of Texas, and to express the solidarity of Republicans statewide, in opposition to his continued status as our elected Senator.”
