TYLER-- Members of the Texas Tea Party are not happy with the National Republican Senatorial Committee.  Across Texas, dozens protested at noon today outside of all of Senator John Cornyn's offices.   As Chair of the NRSC, Tea Party supporters say Cornyn played a role in sending a lawyer to help the tea party opponent in the Alaskan Republican primary. 

It was a close race between Tea Party candidate Joe Miller and incumbent Lisa Murkowski.  Even though Miller won, Tea Partiers warn Cornyn and other politicians to stay out of local elections.

Today, protesters went to Cornyn's office in downtown Tyler and gave him letters signed by all.  One protester says she is disappointed that Cornyn supported a "Rhino" against a conservative candidate. 

However, Cornyn and the NRSC say they weren't trying to pick their own primary candidate.  One NRSC representative says, "At the end of the day, the only people who decided this election were the voters of Alaska as it should be. So unfortunately, is has been a misunderstanding."

Cornyn's office aid listened to comments from protestors, but did not give any feedback.  Senator Cornyn was not at his Tyler office.

I BET YOU VOTED FOR THIS LIAR AND YOU WILL AGAIN.

Dude...did you even read what the guy said. People like you are the reason we have "strong support" for either one of these parties that no longer serve the people. You are much worse than cornyn--while he has his agenda, you mindlessly support other similar agenda because you are foolish enough to think theirs is any different...its a crime

WRONG AGAIN. I JUST THINK IT IS HILARIOUS THAT PARTY PEOPLE LIKE YOU STICK BEHIND YOUR PARTICULAR PARTY NO MATTER WHAT...IF SOMETHING IS WHITE,AND YOUR PARTY MEMBER SAYS IT IS PURPLE,THWEN YOU AGREE AND CAMPAIGN 100 PERCENT THAT WHATEVER IT WAS IS PURPLE....THAT IS CALLED BLINDNESS DON...COUNTRIES FALL BECAUSE OF STUPIDITY IN GOVERNMENT SUCH AS THIS BE IT REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT...

Couldn't have said it myself better Disappointed. You are soooo right about this RINO.

I am no tea party fan, but I see their point. When he's on the national stage, Cornyn supports building a border fence. When he's back in Texas, he says his vote is symbolic & the fence isn't needed. In D.C., he says there need to be hearings on birthright babies. At home, he tells South Texans there's no need for such hearings. He's against federal spending but I found 9 Cornyn press releases in August taking credit for funding and I didn't even look very hard.

Disappointed
