Democrat MJ Hegar launches 2020 Texas US Senate Race

Democrat MJ Hegar has thrown in her hat to challenge Texas US Senator John Cornyn for his seat in 2020. But she still may have a primary challenger from other democrats, chief among them Joaquin Castro.

Hegar challenged John Carter for his North Austin Congressional seat in 2018 and lost by a small margin.
