What is your reason for running?
“I’m running to hold the status quo accountable. I know from beating a well-funded incumbent to gain a seat in the state House that the people want aggressive and active conservative leaders. Oklahoma needs strong conservatives from my generation to carry that torch.”
Why should Oklahomans vote for you?
“Republicans win when we run on conservative principles. I am the only fifth district candidate with a consistent conservative record. I voted against the budget because it grew government and didn't give tax relief to you. I voted to repeal Common Core, even though other candidates voted it in, and I will do the same with Obamacare if you send me to Washington. I do not take money from lobbyists, PACs or special interests, and I will not take the Congressional pension. And I will only take pay for the days worked. This keeps me working for the people of Oklahoma, and not the entrenched bureaucracy.”
What is your political experience?
Currently serving the people of District 82 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives
Vice-chair of the Government Modernization Committee
Economic Development and Transportation Committees
