Why I am the best candidate:   The last thing Washington, D.C. needs is more career politicians or lawyers.  Instead, we need citizen legislators—individuals who can draw from their experience in the private sector to best represent the needs of business owners, employees and average Texans.  My life experience living on Real Street has equipped me to go to Washington and fight the status quo.

Top Priorities:  Repeal the federal healthcare plan; Cut wasteful spending; Balance the federal budget.
