As the Texas lawsuit continues to pick up momentum in its quest for a hearing at the United States Supreme Court, some Republicans are criticizing it.

Sen. John Cornyn, a U.S. Senator from the Lonestar State, said he struggles to understand the “legal theory” of it.

Cornyn was quoted as saying:

“Number one, why would a state, even such a great state as Texas, have a say so on how other states administer their elections? It’s an interesting theory, but I’m not convinced.”

Jeb Bush agreed with Cornyn’s thoughts:

“There is no legal theory and the conservative majority Supreme Court will reject it out of hand,” Bush tweeted.

David Kochel, who was a senior strategist to the Jeb Bush campaign, has said President Trump should concede as Joe Biden is the next President of the United States.

Kochel is a GOP Swamp Monster here in Iowa, serving as Mitt Romney’s top Iowa tool and aiding former Gov. Terry Branstad, Gov. Kim Reynolds, Sen. Joni Ernst and Congresswoman-elect Ashley Hinson.

Kochel was also a long-time foe of Congressman Steve King and supported same-sex marriage long before Joe Biden or Barack Obama.
