On Tuesday, Cornyn campaign spokesman Drew Brandewie called Stockman out over Twitter, sarcastically referring to Cornyn as "Liberal John Cornyn" and referring to his endorsements from ultraconservative groups and politicians.

Stockman's attack is what a number of tea party challengers have been making against the Republican incumbents they're challenging. The problem for Stockman is that Cornyn is rated as one of the most conservative lawmakers in his chamber, according to a National Review analysis of Senate voting records.
