In keeping with our effort to provide Texans with the information they need to be informed voters, Texas Scorecard distributed a questionnaire to those running for the lead the Republican Party of Texas as chairman: incumbent James Dickey and challenger Cindy Asche.

We also decided for the first time ever to make a number of the same questions available to those running for the State Republican Executive Committee as well. While we won’t be issuing an endorsement in any of these races, we hope that the responses to these questions will help you decide which man and which woman will best represent your interest on the SREC.

Consisting of one man and one woman from each of the state’s 31 Senate Districts, the SREC is, essentially, the governing body of the Republican Party of Texas, meeting several times a year to do the party’s business, such as organizing convention, as well as passing resolutions, such as the one censuring Speaker Joe Straus earlier this year.

Here are the answers from the SREC candidates who submitted the questionnaire, sorted by Senate District:

Senate District 1 Senate District 15
Senate District 2 Senate District 16
Senate District 4 Senate District 17
Senate District 7 Senate District 18
Senate District 8 Senate District 19
Senate District 9 Senate District 20
Senate District 11 Senate District 21
Senate District 12 Senate District 24
Senate District 14
