The next Senator chosen to represent Senate District 27 must show a commitment to protecting and advancing civil rights and civil liberties for all Texans. That's why we asked the candidates about policy reforms they would support if elected to office.

Cropped photos of the candidates running for TX Senate District 27, including: Hon. Eddie Lucio Jr. and Sara Stapleton Barrera.

For the incumbent, we analyzed their voting record from the 2019 legislative session. For challengers, the scores indicate how they would have voted, as indicated in their responses to our candidate questionnaire. Here's how the candidates line up with ACLU of Texas positions to expand rights for all.

 

 

On January 15, we hosted a public forum to connect the people of Senate District 27 with the candidates asking for their vote. Candidates answered questions from ACLU of Texas moderators and had an opportunity to clarify their plans to expand rights for all. A live recording of the forum is available on our Facebook page.
