If memory serves, Sen. John Cornyn is running for reelection in Texas in 2020:
“Senate Republicans are waving President Trump off from nominating Kris Kobach, a favorite among conservatives who want tougher enforcement of immigration laws, to serve as the next secretary of Homeland Security.
GOP lawmakers are already scrambling to contain the controversy surrounding two potential nominees to the Federal Reserve Board — Stephen Moore and Herman Cain — and they don’t want to find themselves in another political fight with the White House over the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of Senate leadership on the Judiciary Committee, warned Wednesday that he could not stand behind Kobach if the former Kansas secretary of state is nominated to replace Kirstjen Nielsen as DHS chief.
“I wouldn’t be able to support him,” Cornyn said. “I think his rhetoric on immigration is very damaging to Republicans and would not help us solve what is a very complex problem, which is going to require some negotiation and compromise.” …”
Trump doesn't want a solution. He wants open borders, while fulminating about immigration to fool the rubes. Otherwise, he would have made Kris Kobach DHS secretary long ago. https://t.co/GpCRU6rynT

Would anything be lost if Cornyn were defeated?
As a populist, why should I vote for the GOP on the basis of its “positions” on social issues? They’ve already lost on all those cultural issues. They’re not even pretending to fight anymore.
Do you know what I see when I look at John Cornyn? I see another useless 67 year old Boomer who isn’t going to do shit for me. He is going to fight for $700 billion dollar Pentagon budgets, endless wars in places like Syria and Afghanistan, the MIGA agenda, huge tax cuts and deregulation for all of the wealthy donors who cut checks to his campaign while he condemns “socialism.”
This is Yang Country now.
