Cornyn wins Republican Senate primary

HOUSTON Cornyn handily defeated consultant Larry Kilgore in Tuesday night's primary election to advance to the November general election.

The GOP heavyweight already has $7.6 million in the bank for the fall campaign, when he'll take on the winner of a four-way Democratic contest.

Cornyn was first elected to the Senate in 2002, after serving as Texas attorney general.
