U.S. Senator John Cornyn isn’t impressed with the Texas House Democrats who fled the state to prevent a vote on an election integrity bill.  From the Senate floor on Tuesday, the Texas Republican called their walkout “an embarrassing dereliction of their duty and a shameful political stunt.”  The Democrats say the bill they’re blocking amounts to voter suppression.  Cornyn says they’re simply running away from a vote they know they can’t win.
