GOP Sen. Cornyn leading Democrat Noriega

Republican U.S. Sen. John Cornyn is leading Democratic long-shot Rick Noriega in early election returns.

Libertarian Yvonne Schick was a distant third.

Cornyn is a first-term senator who often sided with President Bush's administration. He attempted to cast himself as a common-sense Texan and an outsider to Washington.
