Reason for Seeking Public Office:

I want to defend our liberty, prosperity and security that are being undermined by excessive small business regulations and a complicated tax code. Further, we need to balance our budget or face financial collapse. And, I want to ensure we have a sound national security strategy that defeats ISIS and provides our nation a strong deterrence.
