Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) had tough words for President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder following a speech today at The Heritage Foundation. He criticized Obama for a failure to lead and voiced concern about Holder’s handling of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.

Cornyn said he was not satisfied with Holder’s congressional testimony last week: “We need to get to the bottom of this and we’re going to continue to press the issue until we get to the truth.”

His messaging in that first hour and going through the debate, was remarkable that’ going resonate on Tuesday. But I’m gonna be very curious to see when Senator Cruz out produces expectations and comes in a first second third place, if he’s gonna get the same kind of press.
Interesting. The only veterans groups that have actually received money from Trump’s fundraiser are in Iowa and New Hampshire… and to get the money they have to pick it up on stage at one of his rallies.
