CORNYN HAS TO FACE A MILITARY VETERAN AND A MILLIONAIRE – GOOD LUCK!
The San Antonio Democrat hoping to challenge Senator John Cornyn plans says he could spend 10 (m) million dollars of his money to win the Texas Republican’s U-S Senate seat.
In an election document filed last month, attorney Mikal Watts stated that he plans to spend six-point-two (m) million dollars in the general election. That’s on top of the three-point-eight (m) million he plans to spend on the March 11th primary.
Watts isn’t an official candidate but is operating an exploratory committee.
Cornyn is up for re-election in 2008 and plans to run for another six-year term. He reported having three-point-eight (m) million for the campaign in March, with new fund-raising reports
due this month.
Also today, state Democratic Representative Rock Noriega says he’ll form an exploratory committee for the race. Noriega served with the National Guard in Afghanistan and has spent eight years in the Legislature.
Question: Would you spend that much money on an election and why or why not?
