Tony Gonzales on Principles & Values

 

 


Conservative but will work with all House members

Retiring Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), whom Gonzales will be replacing, has been regarded as one of the most moderate House Republicans. Gonzales appeared to characterize himself as more "conservative in [his] values" than Hurd, but expressed a commitment to bipartisanship. "It seems like things have gotten crazy as of late. It starts by us coming back together. I look forward to working with all my colleagues, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum to get stuff done."

Judeo-Christian values are the cornerstone of our republic

Q: Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

A: Anti-Semitism is becoming a significant threat in parts of our country and it must be taken very seriously. Judeo-Christian values are the cornerstone of our great republic. I am proud practicing Catholic! I have been attending Saint Mary Magdalene Church my whole life. The values that Christianity, Catholicism and Judeo values embody are the bedrock of our foundation.

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Gonzales voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
