Why should voters elect you?

"Conservative, taxpayer and business organizations confirm that I vote for less taxes, less spending, less regulations and to protect life and Americans' constitutional rights."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Citizens need a representative who will fulfill the federal government's responsibility under our Constitution to solve three urgent problems. We must win the war against radical Islamic terrorists without undermining our civil liberties. As part of that, we must reform our broken immigration system, starting with controlling our borders. We must reduce our dangerous dependence upon imported oil and promote a transition to renewable sources of energy. We must keep our economy strong. Less taxes, less spending and less regulations will help Americans create and obtain more and better-paying jobs."
