Why are you seeking an elective mandate? I’m a former Army Ranger serving in Congress to defend freedom. America needs a cheaper, less intrusive and more effective government from Washington, DC – a government that balances its budget, secures our border, grows the economy and protects individual liberty – the right to life, to freedom and the pursuit of happiness. Congress must solve problems and serve people by advancing the principles that have made America a land of opportunity. Our representatives must reflect the opinions and values ​​of our citizens, not other interests.

Why should voters elect you? Voters should find out about the positions candidates hold, their qualifications for the position, and select the candidate they believe will fight hardest for them when elected. I’m a proven freedom fighter with a great resume and solid voting record.

If elected, what will be your top three priorities? More freedom. Less government. Sound money. 1. Security. National security includes border security, and it is fundamental to freedom at the federal level. I am working on a Stop the Cartels Act that would leverage all national security resources to secure our border, stop cartels, and fund sanctuary cities. 2. Confidentiality. The federal government should not spy on American citizens. I’m working on legislation to recognize that Americans have ownership over their personalized data. 3. Sound currency. I founded the Sound Money Caucus to help lead the way toward responsible budgets for Congress. The current course of spending more than we have, and more than anyone will even lend, is bankrupting our country, fueling inflation and hurting families. It’s not compassionate to bankrupt America.

What specific plans do you have to address these top priorities? Legislation (as noted in the previous question), working with House and Senate colleagues, and education to influence support for a different direction in Congress.

Anything else you would like voters to know? Ohio’s 8th District includes Western Hamilton County (north and west of Cincinnati to the Ohio River), Butler County, Preble County, Darke County, and South County -west of Miami.

If elected, what will be your top three priorities? 1) Support free and fair elections; 2) Balance the budget; 3) Reverse climate change.

What specific plans do you have to address these top priorities? 1) I will oppose efforts to take away our right to vote and lead the fight to end partisan gerrymandering; 2) I will vote against any federal budget that is not balanced and insist that we start paying down the national debt; 3) I will insist that our party become the pro-science party instead of the flat earth society.

Anything else you would like voters to know? Unlike my opponent who: 1) voted against military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine; 2) voted against supporting NATO; and 3) voted against reporting and collecting evidence of Russian war crimes, I will support Ukraine 100%.
