When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

I have been rated one of the most conservative members of the State Legislature never voting to raise taxes or fund budgets with bloated spending including budgets that fund planned parenthood.

The government needs to get out of the way of business and not create absurd regulations that stunt growth.

Unshackle business from the overregulation we have today.
