John Cornyn


Biography

Cornyn was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2002. From 2013-2018 he served as Majority Whip, the second-highest ranking position in the Senate Republican Conference. His 100% pro-life voting record has earned him an “A” rating on SBA List’s National Pro-life Scorecard. He is a co-sponsor of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Born in Houston into a military family, Cornyn’s travels have taken him as close to home as El Paso and as far as Japan. After graduating from St. Mary’s Law School in San Antonio, he served as a state district judge in Bexar County, was twice elected to the Texas Supreme Court and was then elected attorney general. In 2012 he was awarded the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN) “Crime Fighter Award” and the Children At Risk “Founders Award” for his work to end the rape kit backlog and protect victims of child exploitation. He and his wife, Sandy, have two daughters.
