I refuse to go along with the status quo of more wasteful federal spending and I refuse to let the Obama Administration continue to force their misguided ideology through regulatory overreach. I have challenged the status quo my entire life and always call a spade a spade. Our country needs more bold, conservative leaders that will actually do what they promised to do prior to coming to Washington D.C.
Our Constitution is the cornerstone of our Republic and is the greatest governing document in history. At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, one of our greatest founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin, was asked what kind of Government the Constitution gave us, “a Republic or a Monarchy?” “A Republic,” Franklin replied, “If you can keep it.” How true Franklin’s words were and how prophetic they have proven to be.

There is an immigration crisis in the United States, and the crisis is a failure to secure our border and enforce the Rule of Law.
As a conservative Republican, a medical provider, and a father, I strongly support the sanctity of human life. Nothing is more precious. I believe that life begins at conception.
Our nation must embrace an all-of-the-above energy policy, which encourages responsible development of our natural resources and expands domestic energy production.
I have led the charge to improve the health of our nation's forests by adopting a forward-thinking, active management strategy that combats dangerous wildfires before they get started.
The Second Amendment is one of the most important rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.
Admiral Mike Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated that the national debt is the biggest threat to our national security.
America’s problem is not that we tax too little, but that we spend far too much. I will not vote to increase taxes.
The federal government has a constitutional role in funding interstate commerce. I will continue to advocate for our communities while fighting for fiscally sustainable transportation solutions, including the restoration of highways and bridges that are in dire need of repair.
