M,

I know the general attuitude towards Sen. Cornyn in the Valley, but not only has he taken the time to commit a presence here, he has learned our issues and has supported us much more than many of the politicians before him.

I don't care what he stands for on the issues, from a purely selfish standpoint, we have done well with him.
