Agenda to Inspire and Unite Virginia

As Lieutenant Governor, I will fight for policies that resist Washington and rein in Richmond. We must unleash the productive and creative capacities of our people to build, grow, and prosper. We need state leadership that will lessen the burden of government on our daily lives. Adherence to the principles of our state and federal Constitutions is the only way to protect the freedom of every citizen. The light of liberty burns dim today, but we will inspire and unite people from every corner of the Commonwealth to set freedom’s torch ablaze again. Virginians must lead the way. God will show us the way. Let Liberty Light the way.

Promote Parental Choice in Education

Parental Choice in education is a liberty issue and a fundamental civil right. Virginia needs a Constitutional Amendment to recognize and establish the right of parents to determine where and how their children will be educated. READ MORE ON EDUCATION…

Reassert the 9th and 10th Amendments

We must limit the federal government to its enumerated powers and reassert the rights of our citizens and the sovereignty of the state of Virginia.

Protect our 2nd Amendment Rights

While the second amendment specifically protects the right of an individual to “keep and bear” firearms, its purpose is deeper. That purpose is to protect our right to self defense. This is a fundamental natural right we are born with and no government has the authority to take that away. I will not only fight to stop any further efforts to infringe on this right, I will aggressively pursue eliminating the infringements that already exist.

Defend Religious Liberty

Obamacare is a Federal abuse of power which also violates the First Amendment by forcing individuals, businesses and religious organizations to act against their sincerely held religious beliefs. It must be resisted with all the legal and political force we can muster. READ MORE ON HEALTH CARE…

End Unfunded State Mandates On Local Governments

It is wrong for the state to make local residents financially obligated for policies they neither asked for nor approved. There must be a permanent ban on unfunded state mandates and a roll back of these burdens on local taxpayers. READ MORE ON TAXES AND SPENDING…

Permanently Defund Planned Parenthood

It is an act of grave injustice to force citizens to pay for the destruction of unborn babies, whether through state or federal taxes. All funding for abortion and the organizations that provide them must be halted. READ MORE ON FAMILY VALUES…

Fairness For Small Businesses In Virginia

State economic policy must foster small business, which hires most of our residents. Giving regulatory advantages and tax benefits to corporations over small businesses allows politics rather than the free market to pick winners and losers. READ MORE ON TAXES AND SPENDING…

Take A Genuinely All-Of-The-Above Approach On Energy

We must have a truly all-of-the-above approach to solving our energy needs. This includes wind, solar, coal, gas, oil and nuclear energy. Entrepreneurs should be free to explore and utilize all of these sources without asking Virginia’s families to subsidize one industry over another. READ MORE ON ENERGY…
