Scores are based on answers to a candidate questionnaire shared between NRA and TSRA.
A score of AQ indicates the person answered the questionnaire completely and correctly. AQ is the highest score possible for a candidate without a legislative voting record. A letter score indicates a voting record or other direct impact on gun-related issues. Any score less than an A, including those with the Q designation, indicate the candidate or incumbent has less than a perfect record vote and/or a less than perfect questionnaire. Check for folks with a less than perfect score (A- Q)
So do you “hire” someone who’s close to good enough? Remember YOU are hiring a person to represent you with your vote! Get serious.
Every attempt has been made to provide the best and most factual information to all legislative candidates for office, including information on the specific issues covered by the questionnaire.
?? Candidates marked with a question mark did not return the candidate questionnaire and may be considered hostile to 2nd Amendment and hunting issues.
Late questionnaires are always accepted. They are graded quickly and scores change. Check at www.tsrapac.com often.
Federal Election Voter’s Guide
As the NRA state affiliate, the Texas State Rifle Association-Political Action Committee publishes scores for federal office, directly and unedited, as provided by NRA-ILA.
Due to redistricting, those scores are not yet available. We will keep members updated and provide either the guide itself or a link with ratings on federal candidates as available. Stay tuned!
A+ and Endorsed! Means Successfully Carried Our Water!
As you look over the voter’s guide you’ll notice a handful of incumbents rated with an A+ Several of these such as State Senator Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio) are also TSRA Legislator of the Year Award Winners. This award and the rating of A+ goes to legislators with a perfect record vote and who have successfully carried TSRA-agenda legislation.
State Senator Craig Estes is another A+ Legislator of the Year Award Winner with an opponent.
It takes way more than a perfect voting record to earn an A+, much less be a TSRA Doc Brown Legislator of the Year Award winner. Only the best of the best.
So thanks to all those with an A and are endorsed. These are the folks who vote with Texas gun-owners but check out the handful with an A+ We owe them a debt.
Last But Not Least:
Add the information provided in the TSRA-PAC Primary Election Voters’ Guide to your other concerns and educate your vote!
Thanks for the huge PAC donations online and support those who support us and 2nd Amendment rights. T’is the season! We can’t do it without you.
Finally join, renew, and upgrade your TSRA membership at tsra.com or 512-615-4200. As with voting, your power in Austin comes from your fellow TSRA members.
