Political experience: I have served two terms in the N.C. Senate where I co-chair four committees: the Joint Committee on Regulatory Reform, the Senate Agriculture and Environment Committee, the Environmental Review Commission, and the Senate Natural Economic Resources Subcommittee on Appropriations.
Why are you running for office?
I’m running for Congress to get our country back on track and return Washington to a smaller, more limited government that works for us, not against us. We have a $16 trillion debt that continues to grow exponentially and will destroy the hopes and dreams of future generations, not to mention our country. My experiences on our family farm, being self-employed, and serving in the state Senate have taught me how to make the tough decisions we need in Washington right now. I have a strong record of cutting spending, fighting the bureaucratic over-reach, and working to bring common sense back to state government. I will do the same in Washington.
What do you believe are the top three issues?
My focus will always be on supporting legislation that promotes free enterprise and smaller government, including repealing Obamacare. Just as I did in Raleigh, I will work to cut the red tape and restore some common sense to our regulatory agencies so we can get the government out of the way and American businesses hiring again. I will also work to lower energy costs for American families and businesses by supporting efforts to immediately begin tapping into any and every energy resource around the country. Finally, I will work to reform our tax code so that it is fair, flat, and simple and reduces the burden on our businesses and families.
