Sen. John Cornyn joined Pinterest on Thursday to highlight Texas "entrepreneurs whose success came from hard work and personal creativity." The Hill reports, “The new-media campaign is Cornyn's response to the President Obama “you didn’t build that” line for a campaign rally in Roanoke, Virginia. Senator Cornyn said in a statement. “Texans know — but the president doesn’t understand — the recipe for success is limiting government intervention, keeping taxes low and reducing harmful regulations that threaten innovation.” Texas companies featured on Cornyn's Pinterest page so far include Conner Industries (Fort Worth), Austin Glass & Mirror (Austin), Mayo Furniture (Texarkana) and Sunbelt Machine Works (Stafford).
