I have been a high profile tea party activist since the spring of 2009. My efforts were originally fought on the national level and I played an instrumental role as cofounder of Hoosiers for Conservative Senate in defeating six term US Senator Richard Lugar. I have been interviewed by dozens of international. national and local media outlets and as such, my political views are well documented. I am also the author of "Tea Party on Safari - The Hunt for American RINO", which documents the eighteen month effort to retire former Senator Lugar.

Additional comment from candidate:
Washington DC is irreparably broken. The federal government has grown too large, too corrupt and too beholden to a few at the expense of us all The only way to save our nation is through the states, where most of the power was originally intended. For over one hundred years the federal government has systematically usurped the power and rights of the states in direct violation of the Constitution and the states have allowed it to happen. Today, most state level office holders either are ignorant of the fact that the states have the power and means to tell the federal government no in cases that it has overstepped its authority, or these office holders lack the courage or inclination to do so. All Americans are at great peril because of the actions of the federal government. The national debt, runaway spending, illegal immigration, terrorism, a stagnate economy and worldwide assault on our way of life threatens us all. It is time for the states to reign in the federal government.
