Cornyn to lead NRSC through 2012

Coming off a cycle where Republicans picked up seven seats in the Senate, Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R) was re-elected unanimously on Tuesday to chair the National Republican Senatorial Committee through 2012.

Cornyn’s re-election provides the NRSC some continuity in 2012 when it faces a playing field with plenty of pick up opportunities. The GOP only has to defend 10 seats in 2012, while 21 Democrats and two independents who caucus with Democrats are up for re-election.

“I appreciate the strong support from all of my Republican colleagues, and especially our 13 new Republican senators, as we continue our campaign to win back a Senate Republican majority in 2012,” Cornyn said in a statement.
