2014 Candidate Questionnaires

We are pleased to present the Texans for Fiscal Responsibility 2014 candidate endorsement process. While we will not necessarily endorse in every race, we will only consider endorsing candidates for legislative and executive office who return a signed questionnaire.

Once a legislative candidate has returned a signed questionnaire (see below), they will be invited to participate in an interview.



House and Senate incumbents who scored an “A” or “A+” on the 2013 Fiscal Responsibility Index are automatically endorsed for re-election to legislative office. All other legislative incumbents — including those running for statewide office, regardless of rating on the Index — will need to return the candidate questionnaire and schedule an interview.

Questionnaires can be returned via e-mail, fax or mail:
Email: [email protected]
Fax: 512-233-1714
Mail: PO Box 200248, Austin, TX 78720

Candidates are also encouraged to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a joint project of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility and Americans for Tax Reform.
