Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) reelection campaign is airing a new ad warning of the consequences of Democrats taking control of Texas.
The one-minute ad envisioned what would happen if Democrats took control of the state legislature and other offices and passed a host of Democratic-favored policies like a new state income tax and new environmental regulations. A voiceover in the ad said Texans would leave the state and the economy would suffer.
“President Obama and his liberal allies want to turn Texas blue,” Cornyn said in the ad. “But what does that mean? Look at California and Detroit. It means higher taxes, higher unemployment and a government drowning in debt. As your senator and a proud Texan I’ll continue to take the fight to President Obama, to keep Texas strong and on the path to prosperity and freedom.”
The ad, which the Texas Tribune first highlighted on Monday, also features images of state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who plans to announce her candidacy for governor this week.
