Cornyn: Brown Victory Bringing GOP Recruits

Sunday, 24 Jan 2010 06:30 PM

The victory of Republican Scott Brown in the Massachusetts special election for the U.S. Senate has energized conservatives around the country, triggering a fresh round of recruits for the 2010 midterm races, said the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) on Sunday.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, says Brown’s victory has "energized" all types of voters, an atmosphere that has given hope to candidates looking to unseat incumbents, especially in the Democratic majority.

"We already had some great recruits. But I have to tell you there are more coming in the days ahead," he said on C-SPAN's "Newsmakers" program. “It’s energized a lot of people and given them hope that they can take their country back."

The GOP believes Brown's win is evidence that momentum is turning their way nationwide in the 2010 midterm elections. Democrats have argued that Brown's victory was an isolated case against a candidate who ran a poor campaign (Democrat Martha Coakley).

Cornyn said that more races could see competitive Republican primaries, such as one in Arkansas and Nevada.
