Physician Robert Lowry and former CIA agent Will Hurd largely agreed on goals including abolishing the IRS, revamping the tax code and eliminating the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare.
If we want to change what's going on in Washington, we need to change the kind of people we're sending there," said Hurd, a cybersecurity specialist.
"There's absolutely nothing wrong with the conservative principles of the Republican Party. The problem is, we keep sending folks to Washington, D.C., that don't know how to implement them," Hurd said.

These were some of the points former CIA officer and Congressional candidate Will Hurd made during a visit to UTSA Jan. 15. The event was hosted by the College Republicans, an on-campus organization aimed to create increased political awareness and understanding.
Before deciding to run for Congress in the 23rd district of Texas, Hurd was an operations officer in the CIA where he was responsible for collecting foreign intelligence for the President and government policymakers. He has had the opportunity to live and work on the frontlines of several countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.
After nine years in the agency, he made the difficult decision of resigning so that he could run for a seat in the House of Representatives.
When asked why he decided to run for Congress, Hurd said, "Frankly, I am disappointed with the caliber of our politicians. He followed his statement with a personal anecdote.
During a debriefing in the CIA, Hurd was seated next to one of the senior government officials who was responsible for heading the meeting. The official was in charge of important decision-making and several operations in Afghanistan.
Hurd recalled that halfway through the meeting, the official turned to him and asked Hurd to remind him of the difference between the Shia's and the Sunni's.
"I laughed, because I thought he was joking at first - but he was dead serious," Hurd said.
Furthermore, Hurd believes that his experience overseas and in D.C. politics gives him a fresh and unique perspective on the problems facing the nation. Hurd stated that one of his strengths is his strong grasp of America's national security issues, and also local issues, with realistic solutions to the border and drug cartel problems.
"The last decade with the CIA has been incredibly exciting, and I've gained an insight into how our government functions and the impact that our congressmen have on our society through determining how our tax dollars are spent to establishing the particulars of our foreign policy," Hurd said.
Hurd thanked the students who came to the event. He encourages students to "get involved in campus issues and join a campus organization that is active in politics. Hurd graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in computer science. During college, he served as the Student Body President, which gave him invaluable skills that he is now applying to his campaign. Hurd believes that involvement in college brings about change in the community.
Kristina Henbest, freshman anthropology major and the chair of university advancement committee of student government, attended the event and had a chance to meet Hurd personally.
"I think it's wonderful that Will Hurd has taken the time to come and speak at UTSA. Although I didn't agree with all of his views, he has my vote. Most politicians don't bother to listen to what college students have to say. It means a lot to know that he does," she said.
Hurd will be running against Republican candidates Francisco Quico Canseco and Dr. Robert C. Lowry in the March 3 primary.

Will Hurd for Congress
Will Hurd served our country for nearly a decade as an undercover officer in the CIA, working primarily in the Middle East and South Asia on behalf of the United States. Will is running for congress in the 23rd District of Texas because he believes the district deserves a representative - not just another congressman - who will fight to protect our Constitutional liberties, keep America strong, and create jobs.
Will is a San Antonio native, graduate of John Marshall high school, who worked his way through Texas A&M University while serving as its Student Body President. During his time at the CIA, Will led dangerous intelligence collection missions in countries like Pakistan, India and Afghanistan.
