Statement:
Had the privilege of representing District 22 in the House for the last 3 years and would like to continue fighting for conservative values as my record has proven. While my individual race is important, keeping the majority in the State Legislature is more important to ensure parental rights, 2nd amendment rights, and certain personal rights are protected. I appreciate the support I've received thus far and look forward to representing the district for another term.
Endorsements:
