Marchant worked closely with Bush when he was governor of Texas, and bills himself as a staunch conservative. However, he has occasionally broken ranks with the GOP, as he did to increase the minimum wage.

 He has said that his top priority on Capitol Hill will be cutting the federal deficit with fiscal conservative policies. In 2017, he voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Marchant expressed opposition to the proposed “Green New Deal” resolution in 2019, alleging that it would cost up to $93 trillion without having any effect on the global climate.

Marchant cosponsored legislation H.R. 1503 to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require candidates for the presidency “to include with the campaign committee’s statement of organization a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate” plus supporting documentation.

 Introduced without the Republican leadership being informed, Florida Today commented that the bill “stems from fringe opponents of President Barack Obama who, during the 2008 election campaign, questioned whether Obama was born in Hawaii.”
