SEN: U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced he has withdrawn from consideration to be the next Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “The best way I can serve is continuing to fight for a conservative agenda in the U.S. Senate,” he said in a statement. Cornyn’s withdrawal averts a free-for-all special election to fill his unexpired term. Cornyn is up for re-election in 2020.
