In addition to these policy development working groups, I will pursue policies consistent with our founders’ vision of government designed to check excessive federal overreach and protect individual liberty. Unfortunately today, the government is growing too big, our culture is coarsening and the timeless, conservative principles on which our nation was founded are under attack. The challenge for Virginia’s next governor will be to reject federal overreach, secure and strengthen the Second Amendment, and protect innocent human life.
I will stand up for Virginia’s role in our federal system of government, and be a check on Washington when it overreaches or tries to exercise power that is rightly reserved for the states. I will protect an individual’s Constitutional right to keep and bear arms, standing with our Republican-led General Assembly to defend our Second Amendment rights. I am pro-life and would work to foster a culture that respects human life. I support education and healthcare to help women avoid unplanned pregnancies, will advocate for adoption and foster care, and believe we must ensure every woman has the opportunity to choose life. By taking this approach, we can not only defend but advance our shared principles.
