In early February, and again in March after the reopening of the filing period, The Alliance of Constitutional Patriots (ACP) sent a Congressional Term Limits Pledge to the 123 candidates from Texas running for the US House of Representatives and the US Senate who had an official FEC number and a valid mailing address on their web site.

 

Candidates were requested to review the pledge and return it to ACP whether or not they could support term limits. Eighteen pledges were returned signed. It is important to note that of the 32 incumbents, only one signed the pledge.

 

Those who did agree to Term Limits and signed the pledge to personally seek a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on members of congress are as follows:

 

US Senate: (Only 1 of 10 "official" candidates; 10%)

Glenn Addison

 

US House of Representatives: (17 of 113 "official" candidates;15%)
