My wife Tracy and I have been a part of the pro-life, pro-family movement here in Arizona for decades. As a legislator I’m known for my financial background and have played a role in helping to pass historic tax cuts and economic policies that have Arizona leading the nation in a lot of good ways. I value our constitutional rights to life, liberty, self-reliance, and self-defense, and will never stop fighting for them. I have a 100% pro-life voting record and have won the Friend of the Family award every year I have been in office because of my votes in favor of life, family, school choice, and more.
