His father, Jim Crenshaw, is a petroleum engineer who worked abroad, and Crenshaw spent time growing up in Ecuador and Colombia, gaining proficiency in Spanish. He graduated from Colegio Nueva Granada high school in Bogotá in 2002.

After high school, Crenshaw returned to the United States and attended Tufts University, graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in international relations. Later, after his decade of military service, Crenshaw went to Harvard University and studied public administration at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, receiving a Master of Public Administration in 2017. He worked as a military legislative assistant for Congressman Pete Sessions.

2008

While at Tufts, Crenshaw joined the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps and received an officer's commission in the U.S. Navy after graduation. Crenshaw received orders to Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training (BUD/S) at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. After six months of training, Crenshaw graduated with BUD/S class 264. Crenshaw completed SEAL qualification training in June 2008 and received the 1130 designator as a Naval Special Warfare Officer, entitled to wear the Special Warfare Insignia. He served in the Navy SEALs for ten years, including five tours of duty, reaching the rank of lieutenant commander. His first deployment was to Fallujah, Iraq, where he joined SEAL Team Three. He was based out of Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in Coronado, California.

2012

Crenshaw lost his right eye in 2012 during his third deployment when he was hit by an IED explosion in Afghanistan's Helmand Province. The blast destroyed his right eye, and he required surgery to save the vision in his left eye. He remained in the Navy for four years after the injury, and served his fourth and fifth tours of duty in Bahrain and South Korea.

2013

Crenshaw married Tara Blake in 2013. He is a Methodist and hosts Hold These Truths, a podcast he launched in February 2020.

2015

Crenshaw and Kevin Roberts advanced from the nine-candidate first-round of the Republican Party primary election to face each other in a second-round runoff election; Crenshaw received 155 votes more than Kathaleen Wall, a candidate who was backed by Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Greg Abbott. The lead-up to the runoff election was contentious. A super PAC, funded by Roberts' brother-in-law, Mark Lanier, focused on Crenshaw's 2015 statements that were critical of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, despite Roberts having also been critical of President Trump in the past. The ads also compared Crenshaw's policy proposals to the likes of President Barack Obama and Senator Bernie Sanders. Gaining the endorsement of Senator Tom Cotton, Crenshaw received national attention, appearing in print and television, including on Laura Ingraham's show on Fox Business.

Although Crenshaw had previously expressed criticism of some of Donald Trump's statements in a 2015 Facebook post prior to Trump's presidency, he became a "staunch defender" of President Trump following the 2016 election. He voted against both articles of impeachment brought by the House of Representatives against President Trump in December 2019.

Crenshaw believes that government should not be involved in regulating marriage and has expressed support for the legalization of same-sex marriage. In 2015, he took issue with people trying to suggest Christianity is as shocking and as violent as Islam, saying that “the worst thing modern Christianity stands for is anti-homosexual marriage, which is a far cry from sex slaves, sharia law and beheadings.”

2016

As a Navy SEAL, Crenshaw was awarded two Bronze Star Medals, the Purple Heart, and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with valor. He medically retired from military service in 2016 with the rank of lieutenant commander.

In 2016, Crenshaw harshly criticized then-candidate Donald Trump's "insane rhetoric" toward Muslims and "hateful" speech. During Crenshaw's 2018 election campaign, he defended Trump's proposal to build a border wall on the Mexico–United States border. In a May 2019 appearance on The View, Crenshaw claimed that 80–90% of asylum seeker requests "don't have a valid asylum claim". PolitiFact rated his statement as "false", asserting that while it is true that between 20 and 30 percent of asylum requests per annum have been granted since 2009, some of the rejected applications may still hold legal merit.

2018

In the 2018 elections, Crenshaw ran for the United States House of Representatives in Texas's 2nd congressional district to succeed the retiring Ted Poe. He announced his candidacy for Congress in November 2017. Crenshaw credited national security analyst John Noonan for encouraging him to run for Congress. During an interview in February 2018, he stated that border security and immigration reform would be two of his election issues.

On the November 3 episode of Saturday Night Live, comedian Pete Davidson joked about the appearances of multiple candidates in the 2018 midterm elections, and described Crenshaw as looking like a "hit man in a porno movie" while adding that he lost his eye in "war or whatever". The joke received widespread criticism, and on the following episode, Davidson and Crenshaw appeared on air together. Davidson offered an apology, which Crenshaw accepted. Crenshaw and others have speculated that the joke may have helped him win.

During his 2018 election campaign, Crenshaw's website made brief mention of global warming, applauding President Trump for withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accords. Crenshaw described the agreement as "costly and meaningless". He went on to call the agreement virtue signaling and said it was not good policy. He also stated that, "We must use our money to develop better infrastructure." In 2018, Crenshaw called for a debate on the causes of climate change, adding, "We can't start off the conversation saying the climate is settled. The right way to have this conversation is to actually listen to what the science says on both sides."

2019

Crenshaw opposes abortion. In 2019, Crenshaw received a 0% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America and a 100% rating from the National Right to Life Committee. He has stated "life starts at conception" and that he believes Roe v. Wade was a "bad precedent to set" and abortion rights "should be decided by the states".

On May 24, 2019, Crenshaw co-sponsored a bill to extend time limits for claims under the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act.

In 2019, Crenshaw voiced opposition to the For the People Act of 2019. Crenshaw said the bill would "limit free speech drastically". Crenshaw also stated that the bill would use taxpayer money to "legalize" the kind of electoral fraud that he alleges occurred in the 2018 North Carolina's 9th congressional district election. PolitiFact rated Crenshaw's assertion concerning the North Carolina race "false", adding, "nothing in the bill that expands who can collect absentee ballots, allows people to fill out ballots for others, or loosens witnessing procedures for absentee ballots," which relate to the controversial election in North Carolina.

In 2019, Crenshaw said, "climate change is occurring and that man-made emissions play a part in that. What isn't clear is how our actions will serve to reverse that warming trend, and what the cost-benefit outcome would be. Regardless, we should continue pursuing new green energy solutions that lessen our impact on the environment and create cleaner air and water." In 2020 he criticized solar and wind power as "silly solutions" that "don't work," and, instead, advocated expanding nuclear energy and carbon capture technology.

In 2019, Crenshaw co-sponsored a resolution opposing President Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, saying that it would embolden the Turkish military's assault on the Kurdish forces.

2020

Crenshaw spoke to the 2020 RNC Convention on August 26, 2020.

In 2020, Crenshaw defended the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic. In a video retweeted by Trump, Crenshaw rebutted criticisms that the Trump administration had been slow in responding to the coronavirus.

In 2020, Fortune magazine included Crenshaw in their '40 Under 40' listing under the "Government and Politics" category, stating that he "wears his service to his country on his face."
