Reason for Seeking Public Office:
I am running for Congress to bring common sense, free market principles and accountability to D.C. I will always stand up for our values and our constitutional rights. In Washington, I will fight for a growing and prosperous economy, better care for our veterans, a strong national defense, and other commonsense conservative policies that ensure America continues to lead.
