Summary

Current Position: US Representative for US House District 5 since 2019

Affiliation: Republican

Overview:
“As a political outsider, veteran, small business owner, and grassroots conservative, I will bring a fresh perspective to DC and help pass the President’s agenda. As we have all seen over the past few years, it takes a real outsider with real-world experience to drag the swamp monsters to dry land.”
