“For Free Markets and a Free People”After much prayer, reflection, and discussion with family and friends, I have decided to run for election to the U.S. House of Representatives for Oklahoma’s District 2. I would like to thank Representative Markwayne Mullin for his service to our great state and the citizens of District 2, and especially for his efforts to oppose The Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). With his term limit pledge coming up in 2018, I want to continue the tradition of carrying Oklahoma’s conservative values to Washington.
Why the Campaign?
I want my children and grandchildren to have the same rights and opportunities that I have enjoyed. My country has given so much to me, and it is time to give back. Here in America, we each have the unique opportunity to pursue our dreams according to our individual values. But liberty is a fragile thing, so we must be vigilant to preserve it for the next generation.
The decision to run for public office is not something I have reached lightly. I have arrived at a season of my life where I can give my undivided attention to my community and my country. As a free-market economist, I will promote solutions to our nation’s fiscal challenges. As a father and grandfather, I will seek to preserve and protect our constitutional rights. As a Christian, I will defend America’s long-standing respect for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
