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.


Our veterans deserve the highest quality care in the fastest and most dignified method possible. We must fix the VA.


Obamacare has failed. It is time to repeal and replace this fatally flawed law with free market, patient centric options.


Education is best handled by locally elected school boards. We will minimize federal intrusion and end common core.

National Security

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