Sen. John Cornyn (R) has drawn yet another Democratic challenger, and one more from Houston. In addition to retired Army helicopter pilot and defeated congressional candidate M.J. Hegar (D) and former Houston Congressman and ex-gubernatorial nominee Chris Bell (D), outgoing Houston City Councilwoman Amanda Edwards (D) announced her candidacy yesterday.
As the field grows, Ms. Edwards, who was first elected to the City Council in 2015 but is not seeking re-election this year, could be in favorable position. Being the only person of color in the race could allow her to coalesce the minority communities throughout the state, which would give her a major advantage in a Democratic primary. In any event, Sen. Cornyn is favored to win a fourth term next year.
