“People in this part of the State deserve a Representative who knows not only what it takes to create jobs but has actually done it.

Those have been my guiding principles my entire career.
“Because the stakes are so high for area taxpayers, I will be discussing a possible Congressional campaign with my family and Republican leaders throughout the 26th Congressional District and will have a decision in a couple of days.”
“I know that with a Special Election looming in weeks, time is of the essence. Should I decide to run for Congress, I can assure all concerned that my campaign would have the resources to win and keep this seat in Republican hands.”
