Issues

Border Security

  • Provide continued support to the Texas National Guard and Texas Rangers for border security enforcement.
  • Protect law-abiding Texans living along our border from being victimized by dangerous drug cartels; and end human trafficking.

Tax Cuts

  • Reduce the business tax so Texas can attract new businesses to locate and create jobs here, and businesses already in Texas can expand their existing operations.
  • Provide property tax relief for all Texans and eliminate state and local property tax increases for seniors so they don’t have to leave Texas after they retire.

Education Reform

  • Improve education for our children through meaningful reforms which promote transparency, choice, excellence in the classroom and greater local control over curriculum.

Transportation

  • Guarantee all revenue intended for road construction and repair is no longer diverted for other purposes. For our best-in-the-nation economy to continue to grow, Texas must have a best-in-the-nation transportation system as well – one that is efficient, reliable, and affordable to taxpayers.

Second Amendment

  • Fight to protect and defend the Second Amendment right of every Texan.
