“A non-partisan study of the 2013 legislative session by Rice University found that [J.D.] Sheffield was not only the most liberal freshman Republican, he was also the second most liberal Republican in the Texas House.” Three examples show why:

  1. “Sheffield scored a 52 and a 51 on the Fiscal Responsibility Index in 2013 and 2015, respectively, making him the lowest performing Republican in the legislature.”
  2. “He was the only member of the Republican caucus to vote against SB 11—campus carry.”
  3. Texas Right to Life awarded him an abysmal rating of 49/100
