- John Cornyn Incumbent
Cornyn has yet to draw any Republican primary challengers to the race but is taking the threat of a strong primary challenge seriously. Fellow Texas senator Ted Cruz refused to endorse his colleague, John Cornyn, or any other incumbent. He stated, "I think every elected official, including me, owes it to the people, owes it the grass roots, to go and make the case to the grass roots why he or she is representing their interests."
