OK: got a LOT of work done. MAJOR corrections and got the candidates in the proper ballot order. Also, we’ve got the first pass of the Eagle Forum recommendations added for a stronger overall assessment.
I could not possibly have gotten this is such a superior shape without the help of a neighbor, Holly Podkowa. She has taken upon herself to proofread the work (Which I admit I’m not all that good at) and has done a FANTASTIC job, with great recommendations and catching each and every error. The only reason the ones now uploaded are usable is because of her extensive work, which has gotten me to work SMARTER and quite pushing for quantity over quality in this effort. Two sets of eyes is ALWAYS better than one.
So, make use of these; they serve well as an addition to candidate literature and- most importantly- as a guide to lower ballot races very useful at polling locations. (Voters ARE allowed to take them in to the polling location with them.) More on all this later.

Note the links to the top right; we will be adding county-specific GOP primary voting guides as we get them formatted in ballot appearance order. They will be updated with more endorsements as they are put forward. The groups we have selected for inclusion are some of the most reliable and consistent general conservative sources over time and the least corrupted by financial interest, plus not being overly sing-issued.
We can certainly use help from others and all the resources to add additional counties are here. The first link is the template, the second a source of the ballot contents in the proper order. The endorsements are in the group below. Anyone willing to help can message us here.

All the candidates are filed for the March Primaries. Attached is a list of the State Representatives and Sentor candidates, along with a START of some groups’ endorsements.
It looks good from the conservative side; Of the 12 Texas House Freedom Caucus members, only 4 pulled primary opponents and only Mike Lang’s opponent seems competitive. On the Senate side, the only Establishment effort to unseat a conservative is Cindy Burkett going against Bob Hall. Conservatives have strong opportunities gain open seats and knock off a mushy incumbent or two. A tough and very busy primary season is ahead.

This site is an attempt to aggregate as much information about the Texas Legislative processes and participants to permit the conservative community to acts as advocates and to support- or oppose- candidates in ways to advance the concepts of fiscal responsibility and Constitutional, limited government.
Initially this will be the presentation of group ratings of the performance of the Texas legislators, based on their actual voting records. Later, it will emphasize the recommendations & endorsements of reliable conservative groups. We hope to create County level voting guide for download, printing and distribution based on MULTIPLE groups recommendations. The Establishment desperately tries to discount what they denigrate are ‘scorecard politics’; problem is, when tied to MANY good groups, what they are truly have to defend is their actual VOTES or other performance indicators, not how good a ‘friend’ their incumbants are to you.
The site administrators welcome all input on how to make this site better. And also welcome any help in getting county-level candidate lists for creation of voter guides.
