Hurd attended Texas A&M University. He then spent nearly a decade working primarily in the Middle East and South Asia as an undercover officer in the CIA. After leaving the CIA, Hurd joined the Crumpton Group as a partner and helped build the cybersecurity company FusionX.
Hurd's campaign website lists the following issues:
- Protecting a citizen’s right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
- Decreasing the regulatory burdens facing those creating and expanding businesses.
- Protecting our economic future by balancing our budget and simplifying our tax code.
- Ensuring our ability to be energy independent.
- Pursuing a foreign policy that is based on clear political and economic goals.
- Securing our borders by making border security, countering drug traffickers and fighting cyber criminals a national intelligence priority.
- Reaffirming the Republican Party as the party of all Americans trying to move up the economic ladder.
Texas' 23rd Congressional District is a battleground district in 2014 due to the fact that the seat is currently held by a Democrat, but the district has a slight Republican lean and was won by the Republican presidential candidate in both 2008 and 2012. Incumbent Pete Gallego faced no challenger in the Democratic primary. In the Republican primary, Will Hurd and Francisco Canseco advanced to a runoff election over Robert Lowry. Hurd triumphed over Canseco in the runoff primary on May 27, 2014. Gallego and Hurd will face off in the general election on November 4, 2014, along with Libertarian candidate Ruben Corvalan.

Following his defeat in the primary, Robert Lowry threw his support behind Hurd. He said, "Will Hurd has actually fought to protect and defend our Constitution. He will fight for our privacy and our liberty. I know he won't say one thing and go to Washington and do another. I asked my supporters for their input on this important decision and an overwhelming majority thought Will was the best choice. I believe he will stand up to the broken system of DC insider politics, and will represent we the people back here at home, as opposed to just towing the line of the party's leadership."
