Upcoming Events

Press release


Federal Spending

As a Republican candidate for Congress, I believe in responsible federal spending. We should prioritize fiscal discipline and reduce wasteful government expenditures. Our focus should be on promoting economic growth, cutting unnecessary regulations, and eliminating deficits. I will work to balance the budget and rein in the national debt to ensure a strong financial future for our nation.


I support a secure and controlled immigration system. We must enforce our existing immigration laws, secure our borders, and reform the legal immigration process to ensure national security. I also advocate for a fair and compassionate approach to addressing the status of undocumented immigrants already in the country, while ensuring that the rule of law is upheld.


We need market-driven healthcare solutions that increase competition and reduce costs. I support patient choice, protecting pre-existing conditions, and ensuring access to quality care for all. A competitive healthcare system can provide affordable options and innovation in treatments.

Social Security

I am committed to protecting Social Security for current and future generations. We should explore common-sense reforms that strengthen the program’s solvency without reducing benefits for seniors. This includes encouraging personal savings and exploring bipartisan solutions to secure Social Security’s long-term stability.


I believe in low taxes to stimulate economic growth. Lowering tax rates for individuals and businesses can create jobs and increase prosperity for all. A simpler, fairer tax code will help families keep more of their hard-earned money and encourage economic development.

Foreign Policy

A strong and principled foreign policy is vital. I advocate for a robust national defense, standing by our allies, and maintaining a tough stance against adversaries. We should also promote American values of democracy, freedom, and human rights on the global stage.

Second Amendment

I firmly support the Second Amendment and the right of law-abiding citizens to bear arms. I will work to defend and protect this fundamental right, advocating for responsible gun ownership, mental health reform, and ensuring that our citizens can exercise their right to self-defense.


I am pro-life and believe in protecting the sanctity of life. I will support policies and legislation that protect the rights of the unborn while also advocating for women’s health and alternatives to abortion. It is essential to foster a culture that values life and offers support to expectant mothers.

Our veterans have made immense sacrifices in service to our nation, and it is our moral duty to honor and support them. As a Republican candidate for Congress, I am committed to several key principles for our veterans:
  • Quality Healthcare
  • Job Opportunities
  • Mental Health Support
  • Housing and Homelessness
  • Education and Training
  • VA Accountability
  • Benefits and Support
  • Supporting Military Families
I am deeply committed to ensuring that our veterans receive the respect, care, and support they deserve, and I will work tirelessly in Congress to make this commitment a reality. Our veterans have given their all for our country, and it’s our duty to give back to them.
