Caucus Speaker Commitments

In September 2017, the State Republican Executive Committee passed a resolution stating that the Republican Party of Texas expects Republican House candidates in 2018 to indicate to Republican Primary voters whether they will support the Republican Speaker candidate who wins the majority of the votes in the Republican Caucus.

To facilitate this, we developed the Speaker Selection Form.

Candidates who filed at RPT headquarters should have received a copy of that form in their candidate packet. Any candidate who has not yet received the form may download it at the above link and return it as directed on the form.

According to rule No. 43 of the Republican Party Platform, each candidate running for office as a Republican on any ballot shall be provided with a copy of the Platform as well as a review of which items the candidate agrees. Those Candidate Platform Reviews are available here.

Note: Use of the form is simply an easy way to indicate public commitment to voting for the choice of the Republican Caucus. It is the public commitment, not the use of the form, that is the priority.

Here is a list of the House candidates who have already publicly committed to supporting the Speaker candidate chosen by the Republican Caucus.
