Issues

Securing the Border

Because the federal government has failed when it comes to securing our border, Charles Schwertner fought to pass legislation that gives law enforcement additional resources to crack down on drug cartels, terrorists and human smugglers. He also co-authored the sanctuary cities ban to keep our communities safe.

Protecting Private Property

Charles Schwertner passed landmark legislation that permanently protects the private property rights of all Texans against eminent domain abuse. For his leadership on private property rights, the Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND has endorsed Schwertner.

Defending Life and Liberty

As a constitutional conservative, Charles is a steadfast defender of our God-given constitutional rights; specifically our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. He is committed to the protection of innocent human life and passed legislation that prohibits dismemberment abortions and the selling of fetal tissue.

Defending the Second Amendment

Charles Schwertner is a staunch defender of the 2nd Amendment and has been “A” rated and endorsed by the NRA and Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA).

Improving Our Children’s Schools

As the father of three graduates from public schools, Charles Schwertner knows the importance of classroom excellence. He helped pass landmark public education reform that gives students and parents greater flexibility in tailoring a curriculum that supports a student’s individual interests. He also reduced the number of high-stakes, standardized tests from 15 down to 5, so teachers have more time to focus on instruction and education, rather than simply teaching to the test.

Schwertner has also fought to expand schools choice in Texas and provide parents and students with the freedom to decide the setting that best fits their educational needs.

Protecting Seniors from Abuse

As Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee, Charles Schwertner played a leading role in fighting against bad nursing homes in Texas and passed legislation to protect seniors from abuse and neglect.

Protecting Vulnerable Children

Charles Schwertner has worked to protect Texas children by increasing funding for Child Protective Services and fighting to protect children at risk of abuse or neglect.

Fighting Obamacare

Since its passage in 2009, Americans from every walk of life have come face-to-face with the stark realities of Obamacare: millions of health insurance policies cancelled, skyrocketing premiums, rising deductibles, and the frustration felt by anyone attempting to purchase coverage through HealthCare.gov. Obamacare’s top-down, Washington-first mentality has been an unmitigated disaster for the American healthcare system. You deserve the right to make your own healthcare choices, and no government has the right to interject itself between you and your doctor.

As your voice in the Texas Senate, I’ve used my firsthand experience as a physician to fight back against Obamacare and protect the rights of patients. As a diligent steward of our taxpayer dollars, I will continue to fight fraud and abuse in our state’s overburdened Medicaid program.

Great turnout at the Walker County Reagan Day dinner! It’s always nice to see Lieutenant Governor Patrick, Representative Bailes and so many friends from Walker County! ... See MoreSee Less

Boooo! Dan Goeb is a charlatan embarrassment to Texas! Quit changing your name, Dandy Danny Scott nee Goeb nee Patrick. What's next, Peter? Paul? Mary?

Dang. How many of those Reagan dinners y’all got. Seems like a day of celebration for the life, times and career of the actor and President Ronald Reagan would suffice.

So much Diversity...

Senator, you like to brag while campaigning about how many generations your family has been, as it makes you more qualified. So please tell me how many generations Dan Patrick's (nee Goeb) family has been here?

I believe that all Texans have the right to protect themselves and their families. Which is why I am proud to have an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA and Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA). ... See MoreSee Less

Yep everyone has a right to shoot people with an ak assault rifle.

Thank you Dr Schwertner. You are very appreciated in SD5.

We need you in NM

Is that Al Bundy , sorry couldn't help it .....

I am tired of seeing my Republican candidates not trying to get medical marijuana and decriminalization pushed. There are a lot more medical issues that would benefit more from this treatment and CBD is a joke. Get it removed as a Class1 narcotic, which states NO KNOWN MEDICAL USES. We already know thats not true. If you dont want it fully legal i can understand but to deny it as a valid medical treatment is stupid

We need common sense gun safety laws. There's an epidemic of gun violence

Now, if you thought we all had a right to be safe and supported expanded background checks and no licenses for domestic abusers, we could talk.

You are against universal background checks

No one is exempt from getting shot by crazy people with guns.

I sure would not be proud of that.

Of all the issues facing Texas, THIS is your selling point? ffs

I will protect my family, all who live in Texas by voting BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!

As a 7th Generation Texan and gun owner I will tell you what can be done that is common sense: 1. We are all safer with universal background checks...nobody wants guns sold to mentally ill, abusive individuals, criminals, or terrorists...background checks keep us all safe. 2 Ban bump-stocks...these were used in the infamous Las Vegas Country concert shooting...and turn legitimate semi-auto weapons into almost automatic...which does circumvent the law prohibiting automatic weapons. 3. Ban high-capacity magazines over 10 rounds...yup, I have used them and they are fun...but for hunting, even pigs, don’t really need more than 10 rounds at the most...except on the battlefield, and to keep them from being used in mass shootings to slow the carnage and force reloading which has shown to give victims a chance to either flee or fight. Ok...go ahead and argue why those are not pro-gun, yet common sense reform.

And properly supported Public Schools

The interesting thing about the NRA is that they don’t care about republican v. democrat, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation. They will support politicians solely on their voting record for 2nd amendment issues. Can’t find too many civil rights lobbyists that are that inclusive.

Make Texas Great 👍

How are you reconciling the significant amount of money the NRA received from Russia? Your A rating from the NRA comes tied with campaign donations from them - that’s fine but they received millions from a hostile foreign source - my unsolicited advice to you as a constituent is to keep yourself cleaner than that ...

That would be the increasingly bankrupt, Russian-bought NRA, that advocates violence against fellow Americans? Gosh, congratulations.

Here are the Iowa results Buttigieg 37,557 votes Sanders 43,671 votes Warren 32,533 trump 31,464 Biden 26,384. So in Iowa trump came in 4th place. Now he can focus on Pete, Bernie, and Elisabeth.

Protect their daughters from dick pics?

Im not scared of the gun issues because i already know Texas will NEVER give them up and we will fight or succeed before anyone trys to take them

I believe all Texans and their families should be safe from nutjobs with military style rifles and weapons who are either too disturbed or too chicken shit to actually enlist in the army or the guard and be part of that well regulated militia.
