As a conservative Congressman, I see the southern border crisis, inflation, rising crime, and ongoing wars as top concerns. My solutions: secure the border, rein in spending to curb inflation, support law enforcement, and restoring leadership to the White House. That is why I am supporting President Donald Trump for President.

It's crucial to uphold constitutional principles and ensure the sanctity of our electoral process. Too often, we have seen individual interpretations by state officials and bureaucrats undermining the security of the electoral process, which results in growing distrust in the process. All election officials must adhere to established laws to safeguard the ballot, and operate with full transparency with the public.
The U.S. must lead from the front as a world leader, ensuring security domestically first. By prioritizing the safety of the American people, we can effectively protect our allies and respond to global challenges with strength and resolve. Unfortunately, from the botched and deadly withdraw from Afghanistan to the late response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Biden administration has been wrong or absent time and time again on the world stage.
