Windle earned his Bachelor's from the University of Washington and a Master's from Boston University and another Master's from the Naval War College. Most recently he was the Associate Dean and Instructor at the Department of Defense's National Defense University. He has also worked at the headquarters of the National Nuclear Security Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy and other federal offices.
Windle listed four pillars of his campaign:
- "Fiscal Responsibility and a Simpler, Fairer Tax Code. Confidence fuels our economy and job creation. A grand bargain to balance the budget over the next decade would increase investor, business, and consumer confidence creating improved conditions for economic growth. Our current tax code reflects decades of cumbersome complexity peppered with loopholes to special interests that we cannot afford.
- Pro-Growth Policies for Businesses. Congress can partially ease the confidence crisis of the economy by stating in clear terms that Congress intends to pass practical, measurable policies in areas where there is strong support in the business community.
- Efficient, Smarter Government. Under both political parties, the federal government has grown considerably over the last decade. It is possible to eliminate inefficiency and duplication, AND spend savings wisely on priority areas to ensure America is positioned to out-compete other countries.
- A Strong National Defense. Budget constraints mean priorities must be set. Defending and promoting global commerce is a vital interest and should be the centerpiece of defense policy. Expanding care for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces also requires urgent attention."
