I BELIEVE in the sanctity of life, and that taxpayer dollars should never be used to support Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America;

I BELIEVE in the 2nd Amendment and that the rights of honest, law-abiding citizens to own firearms and protect their families must be preserved;

I BELIEVE that ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups present a clear and present danger to America, and that we should immediately stop all immigration of Muslim refugees from known terrorist states.

I BELIEVE that illegal immigration is a threat to our economy and to our American culture.  I support building a border wall immediately and I will defund sanctuary cities that act as “safe houses” for illegal criminal aliens;

I BELIEVE that American jobs should go to American workers, so I support a reduction in the number of guest worker visas our government issues and support strict hiring practices that penalize companies who employ illegal immigrants;

I BELIEVE in term limits for members of Congress, to ensure a more representative government that answers to the people, not to the special interests or the political establishment;

I BELIEVE that President Obama’s illegal executive orders that permit Amnesty for illegals, take away the rights of gun owners, and infringe upon our system of checks and balances is a direct threat to the Constitution and to our civil liberties.  I will never vote to allocate funds to these Presidential directives.

I BELIEVE government must live within its means and not pass along more debt to future generations, so I will oppose any legislation that increases the national debt;

I BELIEVE that Obamacare is hurting families, destroying businesses and holding back our economy, and that it should be defunded immediately.

IF YOU BELIEVE WHAT I BELIEVE,  help me spread our message of traditional, American values.  Together we can win back our party and our country.

While Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, having performed 323,999 abortions in 2015, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), which operate in service sites in both rural and urban locations, offer low-income populations health services similar to those provided by Planned Parenthood, but do not perform abortions.


"Stand with me"

"Stand with me."

Republican for U.S. House




I want to thank all of you for your support and encouragement during the primary election cycle.  Unfortunately, the new redistricting plan places me outside the 7th congressional district.  This disappointing development, coupled with the last-moment change to the  Primary Election dates, simply made it impossible for me to maintain a strong, visible and outspoken campaign.

Many of you continue to ask me who I am supporting in the General Election this November.  Let there be absolutely no doubt: Despite any prior disagreements, I believe we must unite and fight now that the Primary Elections are over and support our Republican candidates. In the 7th district, Congressman David Rouzer has my support this November, and like Senator Ted Cruz, I will be voting for Donald Trump to be our next President.

We must keep Pat McCrory in the Governor's office, elect our Republican candidates in the council of state races, keep control of the United States Senate by supporting RIchard Burr, and maintain our majority in the House by sending David Rouzer and George Holding back to Congress.

Lastly, but just as importantly, we must elect conservative judges, state legislators, county commissioners, town council members and sheriffs.  

It is time to unite as a party to ensure that the candidates who better represent our values win this November. I encourage all of my fellow conservatives to unite and fight, and to support our Republican candidates. Please get involved with your local or county Republican Party by clicking here.

Thanks again for your support.  Now, on to victory as we make this a November to remember!
