Vote on a newspaper ad to defeat John Cornyn

Payback Project

The Payback Project is a new campaign from the national Indivisible team targeting the GOP senators who voted for a coverup in the impeachment trial. One of their tactics is to take out a newspaper ad going after certain senators—including John Cornyn!

Tell the Indivisible Project to target Cornyn!

(After you vote you’ll be directed to an optional donation page. Indivisible Austin does not receive direct funding from the national Indivisible Project. If you prefer donating to your local group, you can do so here.)

Tell Cornyn and Cruz that their votes for acquittal will erode Democracy

If the impeachment trial goes as expected—acquittal without a single witness called—our senators will be responsible for a historical coverup. Their names will be in history books, listed among the enablers of our Democracy’s downfall. It’s time to call and let them know.
