Cargile's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Working for academic excellence.
- Excerpt: "For almost four decades, Andy Cargile worked tirelessly to provide our children with the best education possible. He started out as a coach and classroom teacher before serving as principal of Euless Trinity High School where he was named Just for Kids Principal Of The Year. Known as “Mr. C” by thousands of students during his career, Andy has the perfect perspective we need in the Texas House – a personal understanding of the value quality education plays in the future of our state"
Trusted by taxpayers.
- Excerpt: "After retiring as a high school principal, Andy was elected in a landslide as a School Board Trustee for Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD. Bringing his hands-on experience as an educator and his unwavering commitment to getting us the most for our tax dollars, Andy helped the HEB ISD achieve a “Superior Achievement” rating, the highest rating given by the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas based on responsible fiscal management."
Driven by principles, not politics.
- Excerpt: "Ignoring the rhetoric and tired slogans used by so many politicians, Andy’s leadership is based on a refreshing code of conduct – stand strong on principle and always do what’s right for your community. What matters most to Andy is getting results on what’s important in the day to day lives of our families like quality schools, low taxes, a stronger economy and better roads and streets. We can trust Andy to clean up the often-murky political process and put the interests of our community first even if it means taking on members of both political parties."
Committed to our community.
- Excerpt: "Andy has been an active leader in District 92 for more than 30 years. He started the Angel Fund to help at-risk students stay in school, is a lifetime member of the Parent Teacher Association and mentors for the Euless Trinity High School Character Education Program. He and his wife of 45 years, Karen, have two daughters, Kristen and Kourtney, and are the proud grandparents of five grandchildren. He is an Ordained Presbyterian Elder and earned his Bachelor and Master's degrees from Texas A&M Commerce."

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one- or two-tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
