Over two decades of service to our nation

Protecting Our Nation

After stopping terrorists, preventing Russian spies from stealing our secrets, and putting nuclear weapons proliferators out of business, Will helped build a cybersecurity company that prepared businesses for the next domain of conflict – cyberspace.

Good Policy over Good Politics

While in Congress, Texas Monthly and Politico Magazine called Will “The Future of the GOP,” because he put good policy over good politics at a time when America was often consumed with what divides us rather than what unites us.

He got more legislation signed into law in three terms than most congressmen do in three decades – substantive legislation like a national strategy for Artificial Intelligence – all while maintaining his reputation as “the most interesting man in Congress.”

Continuing his work

Will is a native of San Antonio and earned a Computer Science degree from Texas A&M University.

Additionally, he has been on the boards of some of the world’s most prominent organizations addressing the future of Artificial Intelligence, and most recently served as a fellow at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.

Providing For Family

Will Hurd and his wife Lynlie Wallace first met in 2009, when she taught him everything he now knows about politics.

They decided to tie the knot on New Year’s Eve in 2022.

Lynlie is a legislative and regulatory counsel at a premier public affairs firm.

Being open to discussion and compromise when it comes to our disagreements weakness or betrayal, it's a mature display of the values America is based on.

The choice we face

In this election, we have a choice. We can continue down the path of divisive politics and short-term thinking, or we can choose a new direction.

We can choose a future that is grounded in common sense, that prioritizes the needs of the American people, and that builds on our strengths as a nation.

Together, we can make this vision a reality.

Together, we can create an America that thrives on innovation, that provides opportunities for all, and that leads the world not just in power, but in principle.
