Texans for Fiscal Responsibility makes endorsements in advance of school and municipal elections, partisan primaries and the general election. Here you will find our most recent endorsements.

Texans for Fiscal Responsibility will make endorsements during the 2018 primary and general elections. We do not always endorse a candidate in every race where one is sought.

To be considered for an endorsement, candidates must apply for an interview by submitting a completed questionnaire.

Endorsements are not made in every race and do not constitute a criticism of other candidates running. Endorsements will only be made in contested races.

Our endorsement of a candidate is based on our belief that the candidate will adhere to the best practices and highest principles of ethics, limited government, and stewardship of the taxpayers’ resources.

Questionnaire Submission Deadline:


Judicial Interviews Only (Nov. 16th):
5:00pm November 9th


Round 3 Interviews – All Races (Dec. 12th – 14th):
