Texas Connection: Raised and educated in Texas.

Why I’m the best choice: As a native Texan with a background in agriculture, higher education, health care, and business, it’s important our next Senator have a voice that reflects the variety of people and experiences in our state. I understand the struggles of many Texas families because my family is going through them as well. I am passionate about getting Texans and America on the same page for our nation’s success.

Top priorities: Repeal federal healthcare law; Repeal Dodd-Frank; Balance the federal budget.
