- Creating Jobs
- Excerpt: "Supporter of public policy that will truly encourage domestic job growth in our economy. This includes, and is not limited to, lower taxes, a full revision of Obamacare and ending overregulation from the EPA, immediately roll back the needless or obsolete job-killing and burdensome regulations that stifle the ability of small businesses to create jobs."
- Second Amendment
- Excerpt: "Protecting the Second Amendment and our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms. I firmly believe every American is entitled to the right to own firearms."
- Excerpt: "I’ve been employed in the energy sector for nearly 20 years, and strongly believe the United States needs and deserve a clear and sound energy policy that supports the increase of domestic energy sources while reducing our dependence on foreign oil."
- Protect Our Border
- Excerpt: "We must secure our borders and enforce current law, while allowing for the continuation of legal immigration. In Texas and across the U.S., narcotics, arms and human trafficking have had devastating ramifications when it comes to our safety and security."
