Senator Cornyn on Ted Cruz not endorsing Donald Trump at the RNC

(CORNYN) I think it was a mistake. You don't come to the convention after you have lost the nomination and not support the nominee. I think the right thing to do would be to stay home. I think it was a mistake and I don't know what it means to his future but I think he miscalculated.

Senator Cornyn on Trump Picking Pence as his VP

(Kilmeade) What does Mike Pence on the ticket do for Senator John Cornyn?

(CORNYN) That was a real positive move in a lot of people's eyes, including mine because it demonstrates the type of people Trump will surround himself with which is really important because he has never held political office before, he has never had to govern, he is a business man. Who he selects to surround himself with, if they are more like Mike Pence, that gives people a sense of reassurance.

Cornyn on Trump needing to do better with Hispanics

(CORNYN) There is no secret he can do better among the Hispanics when it comes to voting and indicating his desire to listen to them and their concerns and demonstrate a basic respect that every voter and every person deserves.
