Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Montana

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Texas scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

Controversies

Equal airtime

Prior to the 2014 primary election, Fiscus called for equal airtime on the grounds that his opponent, John Pulasky (D), was an on-air meteorologist for the Northern Broadcasting System, an agricultural radio network owned by state Sen. Taylor Brown (R). Pulasky told the Billings Gazette that he informed Fiscus that Brown would fire him if equal time was demanded, and offered to sign a waiver pledging not to refer to the campaign or Fiscus. Fiscus did not agree to co-sign, instead writing to Brown that he would file a complaint with the FCC if not given equal airtime. Brown then fired Pulasky, saying that he did not want an FCC complaint to affect his network's affiliated stations.[7]
