Why are you running to be a convention delegate?
I believe in our president. He has cut red tape, made improvements in nearly every area, and does what he says. He is the a-typical politician and we need more leaders that lead by example- standing up for 2nd amendment rights, right to life and being bold enough to stand up to other countries and even what is “politically correct” in our own country. Promises made, promises kept.
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Donald Trump at the National level, my husband, Kevin Hornberger at the state level. Under President Donald Trump we have seen incredible job growth, record highs for the stock market, and many good things for our country- but I think what I value most is his willingness to be himself, to not be politically correct- to stand by his principals such as being the first President to speak at March for Life. I hold this ideal of being true to yourself and your principals as paramount to anything else. My father always said, “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.”
My husband is the same, as a MD state delegate, he votes his conscience. There are times I challenge him on a particular vote, and after he explains why he voted that way- I know he fully read and understood the bill- and voted his conscience. He voted what was best for all- not for a political ends to a means.
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
Conscience of a Conservative by Sam Goldwater-
Even tho it was written years ago, one of the biggest things he argued about was spending all our resources on liberal education policy and indoctrination of our children and that is one of the biggest issues we are facing in MD right now
What do you see as the role of a Convention Delegate?
To make the voices of CD-01 heard. There are a
lot of Trump supporters in MD even though we are in a purple state.
