Water Quality

Southwest Florida’s top issue is water quality. We are working every day to fund Lake Okeechobee Watershed and Everglades Restoration projects.

Economy & Jobs

It’s time to get our economy moving again. Cutting taxes, reduce our obscene national debt, and eliminate burdensome regulations.

National Security

Defeating radical Islamic terrorism, strengthening our military and securing our borders at home and abroad.
