VALUES

LIFE

Life is a value we can all cherish. I am pro-life, and I oppose federal funding of abortion, as has been Congressional practice for decades under the Hyde Amendment.

MARRIAGE

I support traditional marriage and I endorse civil unions. I oppose a federal constitutional amendment on these marriage issues, because I believe these matters are best decided by citizens in their respective states.

SECOND AMENDMENT

I strongly support the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms in the defense of one's life and liberty.
