The Post reported that as of Friday, at least seven out of 12 groups listed on that page had not actually endorsed Stockman's Senate bid. One endorsement, the Post pointed out, was attributed to conservative activist Howard Phillips, who died seven months before Stockman jumped into the race.

When the Post asked Stockman's campaign about problems with the endorsements page, spokesman Donny Ferguson said the information was being updated. But the endorsements page was removed as of Saturday, the Post noted.

The Huffington Post pointed out before the Post report that Stockman's endorsements page touted the support of the National Rifle Association. In fact, the NRA endorsed Cornyn.

Stockman has polled poorly for the primary. But without endorsements to lean on, the Texas Republican can still throw his efforts behind raising campaign cash -- last week Stockman announced that his Senate campaign would accept donations in Bitcoin.
