Labeled by the New York Times as “a rising conservative firebrand” and the Houston Chronicle as “[an] aggressive champion for conservative causes,” Briscoe Cain has made no friends in the mainstream media while defending our values in Austin.
Serving as the first and only Texas House member to rank most conservative (#1 of 150) for more than one session according to the scientific and nonpartisan study conducted by Rice University, Cain takes pride in his consistent, conservative voting record.
A founding member of the Texas Freedom Caucus and Chairman of the Elections Committee, Cain doesn’t just vote right—he is a leader on the issues we care about. This past session, Cain authored the omnibus election integrity legislation that Democrats broke quorum and abandoned their posts in order to defeat. Cain co-authored and helped pass legislation to ban sanctuary cities in Texas and has supported all efforts to fund and expand border security. He co-authored and helped pass legislation that lowered property taxes by $5 billion.
As an attorney, Cain has fought for religious liberty, protecting pastors from having their sermons subpoenaed and fighting for the rights of police officers to read the bible and pray during their lunch breaks.
On the pro-life front, Cain exposed Planned Parenthood for selling the body parts of aborted babies and defended the undercover videographer who recorded Planned Parenthood leadership bragging about these sales.
In his private life, Cain walks-the-walk fighting to protect Texans from radical leftists. He has been “cancelled” by BLM rioters at Texas Southern University, kicked out of the Democrat State Convention for trolling liberals, and banned by Twitter for standing up to Robert “Beto” O’Rourke in support of our gun rights. He was featured on Fox News for exposing a liberal educator indoctrinating students with anti-Trump rhetoric and homework.
Since first taking the oath office in January 2017, Briscoe Cain has been honored to represent the district he grew up in. A graduate of Deer Park public schools, Cain was raised in a blended family by his father (a refinery operator) and stepmother (an occupational nurse), as well as his mother (homemaker) and stepfather (a plastics engineer), illustrating the importance of co-parenting.
Cain has a Bachelors from the University of Houston-Downtown and a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from South Texas College of Law and is employed as Senior Counsel with the Fulton Strahan Law Group. He also serves the State of Texas in the Texas State Guard with the rank of Captain. The Cain family attends Faith Family Church in Baytown.
