Reason for Seeking Public Office:

In Congress, you can expect Billy Long to stand up for the issues that matter to you. He shares the values of the Seventh District and will stand up for your rights. Like you, he is concerned about the damage that career politicians have done to our great country, and he will fight against the policies of entrenched legislators, corrupt pork-barrel politicians, and all others who are more concerned about their political career than doing the right thing for southwest Missouri. Billy is not afraid to make tough decisions, which makes him the best choice to be your Congressman.

Billy is also concerned about the direction that some Republicans have taken in abandoning solid conservative principals to appease the Democratic establishment. Billy is not the type of Republican who will say one thing to constituents and another to liberal lobbyists and legislators; he sticks to his guns and will not retreat from conservative ideals. He believes the best way to reinvigorate our party and regain the trust of the citizens is to return to the roots of conservative ideology. Billy will serve as a strong voice for conservative policies in Congress
