Why should voters elect you?

"I have and will continue working to strengthen national security, and improve our economy, veterans' health care, education, transportation and other important local issues."

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

"I believe that protection of our homeland remains the No. 1 priority of Congress, and our efforts to win the global war on terror must continue. Whether overseas or within our own borders, we must remain dedicated to doing what it takes to defend the homeland. I believe this is a two-tiered approach, consisting of border security as well as an aggressive confrontation of terrorism overseas. I will continue to support this position and remain steadfast in our fight against terror. I have been and will continue to support efforts to win this war."
