I support using a party caucus to nominate my party's candidate for Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, and I pledge to vote for my party's nominee.

Yes

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2012 General Election, 2014 General Election, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Man's sin nature and brokenness and dwelling in a fallen world.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in the virgin birth, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and that the Bible is the divine word of God.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

Three years of my Facebook posts. My leading the effort when FWISD tried to allow boys in girls bathrooms. My SB6 testimony covering the same.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Lower taxes, allowing job creators to invest in their businesses.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Let the free market answer that call. Competition across state lines, less government regulation and the free market will make care better and far lower cost.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

It should reduce regulation and reduce taxes. Both will have a tremendous benefit to the economy.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I live in the district for which I seek office. I am a rancher, businessman and successful investor. I have been involved in national security, border security and intelligence initiatives. I am an actual conservative and believe in the founding principles.
