I first got involved in politics to help good conservatives and eventually I ended up running for a vacant seat in the State House. I got elected because I promised to defend families, life, marriage, school choice, and so much more. I've been able to do that and today Arizona is the #1 pro-life state in the country and we're a national leader in school choice. I continue to defend our God-given rights and I've also won awards from pro-taxpayer groups. As one of the top-ranked conservatives in the entire State Senate, I have demonstrated that I am true to our shared core principles and values, and I look forward to continuing my work on behalf of Arizona's families and taxpayers.
