Why I’m Running
I am running for Congress in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District because I love our country, believe in the American Dream, and want to fight back against the radical left’s socialist agenda. This country has given me everything, and I hope to have the opportunity to give back by defending the Constitution and our fundamental American values.
