Additional comment from candidate:

Throughout my life, I have gained an appreciation for how challenging it can be to live the American Dream having experienced difficult seasons in my life and persevering with the Lord's grace through them all. My journey is not unlike many citizens in Indiana and thus has prepared me to be an effective advocate for the people of this district. My unwavering faith in God has sustained me and it is the reason I remain focused on preserving our way of life in our great nation for our children and future generations.
