As part of Texas Scorecard‘s Uncut Conversations series, we invited each of the Republican candidates for Agriculture Commissioner to 1836 Studios sit down for a one-on-one interview. In these interviews, we discuss issues ranging from border security, to agriculture fees, to allegations of corruption within the office.
