For Presidential and Congressional candidates who refuse to provide voters with their positions, Vote Smart has researched their public records to determine their likely responses. These issue positions are from 2020.

  • "As a Catholic and pro-life Arkansan, I believe we have a moral obligation to protect every life, no matter how small, and I remain committed to this fight." (
  • Rated 100% by National Right to Life Committee. (
  • Signed a pledge stating "[...] oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rate for individuals and business" (
  • Voted in favor of H.R. 1 "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" (
  • Rated 0% by Alliance for Retired Americans. (
  • "Lastly, I support policies that help hard-working Americans save for retirement and health care independent of government aid. We must enhance 401(K)'s, IRA's, and health savings accounts so seniors can have security and peace of mind. We should protect and promote the FHA's successful reverse mortgage program, which offers seniors increased liquidity based on the years of accumulated equity. However, these meaningful improvements will only matter if we control Washington's spending addiction." (
  • Despite exhaustive research, Vote Smart was unable to find information about this candidate's position.
  • "Our military is facing severe budget limitations, and Congress must ensure that we are effectively utilizing hardworking taxpayer dollars for our national defense priorities." (
  • "Our military is the most effective military in the world, and our brave men and women in uniform deserve the funding, tools, and support they need to successfully complete their strategic missions around the globe." (
  • "A 21st century system of roads, highways, bridges, tunnels, and railroads is essential to a 21st century economy. Unfortunately, our current infrastructure is outdated and will continue to limit our economic capabilities until it receives a serious makeover." (
  • "The American people deserve certainty from their elected officials that we can provide long-term authorization for planning our crucial infrastructure needs. Up-to-date roads, highways, and bridges are needed for economic development, and today we cleared a major hurdle in delivering that certainty." (
  • "[...] lowering our corporate tax rates, more money will be flowing into our country with businesses returning home -- creating even more jobs in our state and country." (
  • Despite exhaustive research, Vote Smart was unable to find information about this candidate's position.
  • Voted in favor of H.R. 5 "Student Success Act" (
  • "The Administration's one-size-fits-all, top-down approach for our Nation's education system has burdened our local school districts, hindered the education of students in Arkansas, limited choices for parents, and obstructed innovation by teachers in the classroom." (
  • Rated 6% by Environment America. (
  • "'The president and his Administration were handed a significant defeat by the Court in their unlawful proposal to advance the president’s climate agenda.[...]While we must support reasonable rules to protect our environment, the Clean Power Plan is not a reasonable, nor a legal solution, and I am glad the highest court has similar feelings.'" (
  • "I oppose ObamaCare." (
  • "Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 596 which repeals the President's flawed health care law in its entirety and provides the Congress with a clean slate to implement the real, patient-centered health care reform that this Nation needs and deserves." (
  • Voted in favor of HR 6201 - Families First Coronavirus Response Act. (
  • Rated 100% by Federation for American Immigration Reform. (
  • "Last year, House Republicans and the president offered equitable solutions for Dreamers in exchange for much-needed asylum reforms, family unification at the border, and border security funds. But sadly, as noted, the floundering majority in this House can't find that compromise, can't find that common ground. In my view, H.R. 6 is an insincere bill with no chance of being signed into law. I call on Speaker Pelosi to stop the messaging bills and negotiate with Republicans in the minority to fix our broken immigration system." (
  • Rated 100% by Federation for American Immigration Reform. (
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (
  • "Iran is run by a rogue regime that poses a serious threat to our nation and our allies, and I strongly support the president reimposing sanctions that were lifted under the Iran nuclear deal. America will not tolerate Iran's mullahs' corruption, gross violations of human rights, support for terrorism, illegal testing of ballistic missiles, and its nefarious activities in the region. Enough is enough, and until Iran changes, these sanctions will remain in place." (
  • "While I appreciate the Administration's efforts to promote peace in the region, I do not believe the current framework will accomplish our stated goal of a verifiably dismantled Iranian nuclear program." (
  • "This trip was well-timed considering President Obama's recent announcement to maintain U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan at 9,800 through the end of 2016. The President made a sensible strategic decision in maintaining U.S. and NATO strength to train, advise, and assist the mission of charting a path for a secure and economically independent Afghanistan." (
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (
  • "I encourage the president to remember the mistakes of the Obama administration when it withdrew for a "stable Iraq." We cannot allow the atrocities being committed against the Syrian people by the dictator Assad, Russia, and Iran to continue with impunity." (
  • "President Trump has pledged to have a fair and reciprocal trade relationship with Europe, and it was an important meeting as it relates to auto prices for consumers. I've heard from manufacturers in central Arkansas and they have voiced their concerns about what these tariffs could mean for their businesses." (
  • "I'm pleased to see U.S. Trade Ambassador Lighthizer make progress on negotiations between our country and Mexico on President Trump's goal of an updated NAFTA. Hopefully, Canada will now come to the table and we can achieve a productive three-way agreement. I will carefully review and work with my colleagues in Congress, and those I represent in central Arkansas, to ensure our American workers, farmers, and job creators benefit from the ultimately proposed amendments."
