Representatives in Congress should made up of ordinary citizens and not lawyers, doctors and millionaires who work for special interests, billionaires and corporate campaign contributors. I will work for the ordinary citizens of Maryland.

President Obama, he made it possible for people to visualize that you can be anything you want to be in this great country.

What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
I do not support suicide in any capacity and only support abortion when the pregnancy is the result of rape, incest, teenage pregnancy and when the baby is a threat to the life of the mother.
What is your position on taxes, spending and the federal deficit?
I support cutting taxes to spur economic growth but we must also stop Washington from harming economic growth that is created through wasteful spending.
What is your position on gun rights?
The United States does not have a monopoly on mental illness but we do have a monopoly on people who have mental illness that have access to guns. We must require universal background checks before anyone purchases any firearms.
What is your position on the legalization of marijuana?
I support the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes. I will withhold my support for recreational use until I receive more information on the impacts marijuana has on the states that have legalized it.
What is your position on trade?
Free trade should be fair for all countries. We must reject trade agreements that do not protect American jobs, economy and exports.
What is your position on foreign policy and military issues?
I strongly believe in “Peace through Strength” and the world needs the United States to police it. We have seen in the last decade that the world has been burning ever since we withdrew our leadership role. Dictators have been emboldened, terrorism has flourished and wars have increased.
