Robin Dupuy


I am a Constitutional Conservative, Republican woman.  I am a licensed Mortgage Loan Officer and also, more importantly, a successful single mother of 3.  All three of my children vote Republican, reside in Montgomery County and are responsible citizens.  My oldest son has a successful job and is getting married to a beautiful young woman, with 2 young boys, in February.  My second son is a Political Science major, in his last semester at West Texas A&M University and my daughter is married, a working mother and gave me my first grandchild. I have been licensed in Real Estate and been licensed in Personal Lines Insurance. I did attend Lone Star College, with honors.  Working hard comes natural to me and I strive to be my best, in all that I do. 

I was raised in a very stable and loving family in Spring/Klein,Texas and graduated from Klein High School. I moved my children to Montgomery County in 2007.  I have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, the Montgomery County Food Bank, Veteran Benefits, Homeless Ministries and Divorce Care for adults and children.  I have, myself, rescued many animals and kept them or found them homes.  I love the Lord and I believe in taking care of those in need, whether humans or animals.  I was raised in a church school and have always been involved in church and ministry, in many different areas.

It is very important to me to bring about change in our country, state and county, for my family and yours. I will work hard to give the control back to the people. I stand for the Flag, Bill of Rights and the Constitution. I am a Second Amendment advocate. I believe in life at conception and have gone to the State Capitol to fight for Life. I do take my responsibility, as a United States citizen, very seriously. I was a delegate to the Republican State Convention in 2018. I write to elected officials, often, regarding issues that are concerning to me. I have always voted Republican and I make it my business to be educated about the issues and candidates, locally and nationally.  I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and I stand firm to His truths and I believe that the Bible is the Word of God.

I ask for your vote in this election and I promise to do my best and to work hard for our county, state and country.  Thank you!

This is a Republican primary race.  Do you promise, if elected, to abide by the RPT platform?  And if not, please enumerate what problems you have.

Yes, I do and I agree with the platform.

Do you support current RPT chair James Dickey in full and if not, what do you disagree with?

Yes, I do.

Did you support liberal Texas house-speaker Joe Straus?  Why or why not?

I absolutley do not, he should not be a Republican, he does not vote consistent with the RPT.  He needs to be removed.

Please describe what you believe are the most significant issues in this race, why and what you'll do to address them?

The toll road issue, in regards to Montgomery County:  I oppose the toll and will vote against it.  It should have never been an issue, the state was going to pay for it any way.

Property taxes:  I oppose raising property taxes and agree that we need to reevaluate the present system.

The establishment needs to be opposed in order for real change to benefit the people.  I am not an establishment Republican.

Which supreme court cases should Texas just ignore?

I do not think that the Supreme Court cases should be ignored by Texas.  Each Supreme court case will set a precedent for other court cases.


There's discussion about making major revisions to the RPT Platform. Please describe the nature of any major changes you support.

I do not know of any changes that I would support.  I would have to evaluate each proposal, carefully, I don't see the need for any major changes.

As a Republican, if you had to give up one of the following core principles, which one would you select first and why? 
a. pro-life;
b. 10% reduction in state, fed, local spending;
c. 2nd amendment;
d. illegal immigration;
e. foreign bases; 
f.  10th amendment

B, because it is important, but of least importance and can be taken care of by careful budgeting, a careful use of funds. It should be handled that way any way.

For what offices should term limits be implemented?

Term limits are helpful in giving new opportunities for new ideas and progress, but the down side is that they take out the good, as well as the bad.  The better course for removing officials that are not representing well or doing their jobs is education and campaigning.  The vote of the people. 

What distinguishes you from your opponent?

My opponent is a Republican, Christian, family women, but I do not know her political views or her heart. 

I do know my views and I am in line with the Lord's views and the views of the Republican Party. I am a Conservative Christian woman, who is not afraid to vote her conscience, even in the face of adversity.  I will fight for bringing the power of the government back to the people. 

I am not an establishment Republican. 

Please list 3 federal agencies that are popular in our culture and should be abolished

Department of Education, educating our children should be left to the parents and states. Student loans are important for those that would not normally be able to attend college, due to this department, the state should be in control of this.

Endowment of the Arts, this should be left to the private and non profit sectors. I believe it is abused.

IRS, needs to be abolished and a better system put in place.

There are way too many federal agencies, some are duplicative.  I am hoping this present administration will continue to work to streamline the agencies.

Are the United States and Texas constitutions living documents?  Please answer in the context of Progressivism versus Originalism.

Yes, I do believe that the Constitutions of the U.S. and Texas are living documents, because they are open to change by ratification, by amendment or by repealing an amendment, as new issues arise.  The original intent of our forefather's should be adhered to, they didn't want the federal government to overreach into our private lives.  An originalist leaves no room for change or amending and the progressive would say that times have changed since the document was written government should have the ability to change things. The originalist doesn't leave room for new problems and the progressive would change the constitution until it isn't even the same document, there would be no more respect for the integrity of the document, if so.


What form of federal tax law do you support and why (e.g., current, flat tax, fair tax, other)?

I agree with the idea of flat tax, that way everyone pays the same percentage based on their income. The present system is too cumbersome. I am open to a fair and better system, for all.

2nd Amendment - guns

Do you believe the Second Amendment grants an individual right or a militia right?

I believe it is both, you can't have a Militia, without individuals with rights to bear arms. A militia is a group of citizens banded together to be called upon for service in a time of emergency or need.

10th Amendment

Please explain your interpretation of the Tenth Amendment and the principle of nullification. Do states have a right of nullification? What should the federal government do if a state attempts nullification?

The federal government only possesses the powers delegated to it by the Constitution, all the remaining powers are reserved for the states/people. States should have a right to nullification if the federal government is over extending their rights of power given by the Constitution. If federal law is unconstitutional it should be challenged.

Other civil liberty

At what point should the "right to life" or "personhood" be granted to new human beings (e.g., at conception, 13 weeks of gestation, birth, 5 days old, 18 years old, etc)? What action, if any, will you take to reflect this in law?

The right to life should be granted from conception. I will oppose anything that is contrary to this.

Do you support or oppose federal funding for Planned Parenthood and other agencies that perform abortions, both in the U.S. and abroad (even if they use money derived from other sources)?

I adamantly oppose any organization that performs abortions, both in the U.S. and abroad. 


Do you support or oppose allowing parents direct the flow of federal education funds (e.g., to their school or home school of choice)? Support? Oppose? Please explain.

I would support this in the hands of the people rather than the federal government, allocations of funds should be handled entirely, at the state level. 


What, if anything, should be done to protect our borders from illegal immigration?

The laws we have in place should be better implemented and our enforcement teams should be adequate for the job they have to do.  I do believe we should have a "wall" to better aid our enforcement teams to do their jobs adequately and reduce the crime coming into our country, for the protection of our U.S. citizens.


Do you support or oppose the referendum passed by both the MoCo GOP Executive Committee and SREC to allow voters, at the statewide level, to decide in the voting booth whether or not they want a particular toll road?  Why or why not?

Yes I support this.  Having a toll road will impact the voters, I believe they should have the right to vote on it.  I don't believe it should have ever been a decision, when the state would have paid for the road any way. We have too many toll roads as it is.  We need to take a look at all of the toll roads and reevaluate the necessity. 


What does being a conservative mean to you?

Having traditional values and being thoughtful and cautious about changes in the religious or political realms, especially.  Having wisdom and discernment in all decisions and taking the time to think things through thoroughly and the implications of a decision, before moving forward.
