Loose Cannon Congressman Steve Stockman (R) Files for US Senate

Oh, we all should have known! Congressman Steve Stockman, who is the only person who currently holds office that could make Sen. Ted Cruz blush, changed his mind late Monday evening.

Before the 6:00 pm deadline, Congressman Stockman un-filed from running for re-election to US Congress and re-filed to run for US Senate.

Congressman Stockman sat down with WND where he called Sen. John Cornyn a "back-stabbing" Senator. Stockman went on to state:

"We are extremely disappointed in the way he treated his fellow congressmen and broke the 11th commandment and undermined (Sen.) Ted Cruz's fight to stop Obamacare."

It does not look like Congressman Stockman is going to hold back against Sen. Cornyn. Congressman Stockman has called for impeachment of President Obama for just promising gun reform and regulation and compared the President to Suddam Hussain. More recently, Congressman Stockman's campaign offices were found to be a death trap for his campaign workers. In his first stint in congress, Congressman Stockman suggest the Clinton administration raided the Branch Davidian compound in Waco to justify an assault weapons ban and brought Ted Nugent as his guest to President Obama's 2013 State of the Union address.

Sen. John Cornyn's life just became a lot harder. And it is going to be fun to watch him squirm.

Read more on what Texas' Loose Cannon, Congressman Stockman had to say about running for US Senate after the break.

"Now, it looks like Cruz was right and Cornyn was wrong. He (Cornyn) sided with the president, essentially, in making sure Obamacare became law while Cruz did everything possible to stop it."

"If you disagree with someone, that's fine, but I really believe you should do it privately, not so publicly ... He made a big show of removing his name from a letter supporting Cruz. ... We think he needs to be held accountable for his decisions, and we look forward to a vigorous campaign."

When asked if he could beat Sen. John Cornyn, Stockman said:

"I don't know that I can beat him, but I am sure going to try. ...In Texas, conservative policies win over stabbing fellow Republicans in the back."
