AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — President Donald Trump is endorsing Sen. John Cornyn for re-election in 2020, saying the chamber’s No. 2 Republican “has done an outstanding job for the people of Texas.”

The president tweeted Thursday that Cornyn is “strong” on the Second Amendment, the U.S.-Mexico border and crime, and “loves” the military.

Trump added: “John has my complete and total endorsement.” Cornyn isn’t expected to have a close re-election fight.
