Texas is holding elections, including for state legislative offices, on March 5, 2024. A number of candidates running in these elections completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
Below is a selection of responses from the candidates who filled out the survey as of Sept. 19. To read each candidate’s full responses, click his or her name at the bottom of the article.
Andy Hopper (R) is running for Texas House of Representatives District 64, and the Republican primary is on March 5. Here’s how Hopper responded to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
“The federal government has grown too big, and Texas is enabling them to do so. At the end of each legislative session, Texas cedes more and more power to Washington bureaucrats than they do to the people of Texas.
Texas should not merely be a reflection of the federal government, but should oppose the unconstitutional and invasive abridgements of our natural and constitutional rights by Washington, D.C. We Texans must fight to reassert our sovereignty.”
