What is your reason for running?
“For 13 years, I served the people of Oklahoma as the director of the nation’s largest Christian youth camp, Falls Creek. Over the past three years, I have served the families of our state in the United States House of Representatives. Now I have a clear calling from God to serve the individuals and families of Oklahoma in the United States Senate. I have been in the thick of the fight for the future of our nation. I will continue to work for Oklahomans and our nation to preserve the freedom that made our country great and continue to bring common sense and reason at this critical time. The status quo of politics is to make a speech and say it is done; but that is not how you solve the problems we face today. It takes work. We must deal with our debt crisis, wasteful spending and unaccountable government officials. Oklahomans deserve conservative leadership.”
Why should Oklahomans vote for you?
“Real conservatives must bring real conservative solutions. While there is no quick fix or easy solution, we must get started now. In the U.S. Senate I will work to protect our Constitutional Rights, Balance the Budget, Repeal Obamacare, Stop Government Waste, Stand Up for the Unborn, Advance American Energy, Keep Education Decisions Local, Honor Our Military, First Responders & Veterans, Enforce Immigration Law and Reject Amnesty, Limit Federal Government Intrusion, and Provide Leadership Instead of Playing Politics. Hard work, accountability and personal responsibility are the keys to turn our nation around. Public service should focus on elevating American families, not elevating a career politician to their next position. It is time to stop dividing America for political gain and start bringing common sense conservative solutions.”
What is your political experience?
“Currently I am in the United States House of Representatives for the 5th district of Oklahoma holding the 5th leadership position in the House serving as the Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee in addition to serving on the House Committees on Budget and Oversight & Government Reform, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Energy Policy, Health Care, and Entitlements.”
