Using the New Media

Senator John Cornyn has been doing an excellent job of using the new media to stay in contact with his constituents and keep folks informed of what is going on up on "The Hill".

Senator Cornyn reached out to bloggers during his last campaign and started a campaign blog to share information and gather input. The blog is still somewhat active but should be updated a bit.

The Senator also has a Facebook page and a Youtube channel. When Senator Cornyn makes a statement on the Senate floor, that statement ends up on his Youtube channel. The Senate Hub on Youtube has launched a "Senator of the Week" program, and Senator Cornyn is the first Senator to be highlighted. The topic is a bit outdated, but it is cool that he is being highlighted first.

Now we just have to get him out to the range shooting some action pistol and EBR's.

JR,

This is off topic to your post, but I was wondering what your thoughts are on the State sovereignty laws that are being considered (not in TX but other States). I posted the proposed bill from AZ today. I know that you hold the Constitution in high esteem. Anyway, I would appreciate your thoughts.
