According to the the outlet, “Cornyn said negotiators need at least another week to resolve their differences.”
Cornyn commented, “Good consensus legislation takes time. So I hope Sen. Schumer will let his members work. There’s no use in rushing a vote on a doomed partisan bill like the House is expected to vote on this week.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tapped Cornyn to be his gun control liaison to the Democrats three days after the Uvalde, Texas, shooting.
McConnell tasked Cornyn with reaching a “bipartisan” deal on gun control. On Sunday, 250 Republican donors ran a full-page ad in the Dallas Morning News praising Cornyn’s gun control efforts.
