Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree   

I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

In the extremely rare occasion when the mother's life is in imminent danger.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

That the government may not coerce it's citizens to support or participate in any religion or it's exercise and that the state cannot interfere with a person's own religious belief.


Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

All Americans deserve the right to adequate, affordable healthcare. Patient centered healthcare with choice and control for everyone. You cannot fix the healthcare system with broad strokes but more with targeted fixes to the system...lowering the cost of prescriptions, co-payments and deductibles, to name a few.

Strongly Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

Anyone who comes to America through legal channels


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus Christ is our one and only Savior and was born of a virgin, lead a sinless life, crucified for our sins, rose from the dead and now sits at the right hand of God. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father except through Him.
