Landgraf's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "As state representative, I will fight to lower the tax burden on Texas families and businesses. Texas doesn't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. I will oppose any measure that increases the overall tax burden on Texas taxpayers. Instead of raising taxes, I will pursue smarter, more efficient ways to spend the people's money, and return to the taxpayers the funds that we don't use."
- Excerpt: "I am staunchly pro-life, a stance that has been developed by my Christian faith. I believe that life begins at conception and that it should be protected by law. I will fight the pro-choice lobby at every turn until abortion is illegal. I am proud to have never supported or contributed to any pro-choice candidates, officeholders or causes."
- Excerpt: "As a lifelong gun owner, hunter and rancher, I am a staunch defender of the Second Amendment. I will vigilantly fight to defend our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. I view that right as one that is fundamental to free people and one that is the foundation of a free society."
- Excerpt: "United States immigration laws should be enforced by the federal government, but where the federal government fails to act, Texas must exercise its legal authority to enforce it's own laws. As state representative, I will support efforts to protect the safety and property of Texans instead of waiting for a reluctant federal government to enforce its own laws."
- Excerpt: "Our oil and gas business and the Texas economy are in danger of regressing as our highway infrastructure continues to deteriorate. Texas highways were once the envy of the nation, and we have the resources to rise to the top again . . . Importantly, I will fight to ensure that West Texas receives a fair return on its investment in the state highway system."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
