(CNN) — Republican Senator, John Cornyn, has kicked off his bid for re-election.
He was joined by Governor Rick Perry at a rally in Austin.
Cornyn took to the podium to slam democrats, including referencing state Senator Wendy Davis, who's running for governor.
"We don't want a Nancy Pelosi clone as the next governor of Texas," said Cornyn. "Nor do we want to turn over the Senate seat first held by Sam Houston...which I currently occupy, to a Democrat in November. Are you with us?"
Senator Cornyn is currently seeking a third term in office.
