Statement:
I was asked to run because for the first time in Arizona history we were about to have no ranchers in the Legislature. Cattle is one of the five “C”s we learn about in school, and everyone involved in ranching, agriculture, farming and working the land needed a rural Arizona voice when it came to issues like water, infrastructure, roads, etc. As promised, my record is 100% pro-Life, pro-Taxpayer, pro-Constitution, and pro-Family Values. Fighting for what’s right has made me the target of ugly lies and attacks, but I won’t be scared off. I love President Trump fighting the swamp for us and he inspires me to do the same. On behalf of my awesome wife and kids, thank you for your continued trust!
