Navy SEAL veteran and GOP congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw sat down with The Daily Caller News Foundation Friday to detail his thoughts on leadership, gun control and the fate of the Republican Party in Texas.
Crenshaw, 34, is not your typical, inside-the-beltway candidate, and it isn’t stopping him from throwing his name in an open race to fill the vacancy left by outgoing GOP Rep. Ted Poe of Texas.
Despite taking on wealthy trial lawyers, bankers, doctors and politically connected opponents, Crenshaw managed to edge out all but one Republic challenger in the March primary election in Texas. He currently faces Texas state Rep. Kevin Roberts in an upcoming May primary runoff that will decide who will proceed to the general election in November.
Crenshaw has the endorsements of Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, who he worked for previously on Capitol Hill, and Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who, like Crenshaw, is a veteran of the Iraq War.
Like many conservatives in Texas, Crenshaw is pro-life, in favor repealing and replacing Obamacare, protecting Second Amendment rights, continuing to fight ISIS abroad and reforming Veterans’ Affairs, where he is committed to continue seeking health care.
