Campaign themes

Excerpt: "The first step to creating jobs is ensuring government stays out of the way and allows businesses to grow. Small business is the job creating engine of our economy."
  • Spending
Excerpt: "As your Senator, I will cut wasteful spending from the state’s bloated budget and fight for smaller government so we can reduce the tax burden on our families and businesses."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "I will fight every day to lower taxes on our citizens and will oppose any efforts to raise taxes or fees."
  • Illegal Immigration
Excerpt: "I oppose giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens at NC community colleges and will work to pass the Honest Election Act, which would require a valid photo ID to vote. I will make sure local law enforcement has the tools, the authority, and the support that they need and deserve. "
  • Abortion
Excerpt: "I have pledged to protect life by requiring minors who seek abortion to obtain a notarized signature by their guardian. I also support establishing a “Choose Life” license plate to help raise funds for Pregnancy Care Centers."
