The tweet by Reid communications director Adam Jentleson came a day after Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) jumped into the Republican primary against Cornyn.

Stockman, earlier on Tuesday, began fundraising against Cornyn by accusing him of being liberal. It's a line of attack a number of tea party challengers have taken against incumbent Republican lawmakers. Cornyn though is considered one of the most conservative lawmakers in the Senate and has focused his re-election campaign on stressing his conservative credentials.
