A People’s Agenda

Economy

Nevadans have been hit hard by reckless spending in Washington. Under the Biden administration, skyrocketing prices for food, housing, and energy costs have destroyed family budgets. But instead of cutting back during these challenging economic times, Congress has mortgaged America’s future by spending even more and devaluing our currency. 

As Nevadans, we make tough choices and live within our means…why shouldn’t Congress do the same?

Our economic problems are the consequence of Washington bureaucrats consolidating too much power into a centralized federal government. This isn’t what the Founders intended. 

As a conservative, I will be a champion for fiscal responsibility, spending accountability, permanent tax relief, energy independence and security, and returning power back to state and local governments.

Immigration

Under Joe Biden, our country is being overrun by violence and deadly drugs because of the cartels. It’s beyond a border crisis – it’s a national security disaster. Joe Biden, the D.C. establishment, and far left open border Democrats like Jacky Rosen are to blame. Under Joe Biden's disastrous administration, there have been nearly 10 million illegal border crossings and hundreds of dangerous criminals on the terrorist watch list have attempt to infiltrate our borders.

Career politicians use America’s broken immigration system as a political talking point and never actually solve the issue. It’s unacceptable and puts America at risk. As a Senator, I will immediately prioritize securing our borders and fighting back against the drug cartels. They will be stopped and brought to justice for their heinous actions. It’s not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of national security.

It’s time the U.S. Senate finally takes action to stop the waves of illegal immigration and hold Biden accountable for his failure to secure our borders. I’ll demand more funding for border security and patrol technologies, finish the border wall, stand with law enforcement, and fix our broken immigration system to encourage legal immigration only. American sovereignty depends on full control of our borders. We must take this threat seriously and act swiftly.

Education

We need conservative leaders in the U.S. Senate who are committed to making school choice a reality across the country.

Families deserve the power to make their own choices when it comes to the education of their children, and I’m committed to getting the politicians out of the classroom.

Creating better curriculums, empowering educators, and giving parents school choice are the keys to unlocking the full potential of the next generations. A family's zip code should not determine their access to a quality education. 

It all starts with returning control to the local level, empowering parents and teachers – not D.C. bureaucrats, unions, or activists – to make the best decisions for students. Our classrooms should be focused on educating, not indoctrinating.

Nevada

The Bureau of Land Management controls over 48 million acres of Nevada, a major piece of the 86% of Nevada owned by the federal government. As Nevada’s U.S. Senator, I consider it a prime goal of mine to see that targeted areas of land are responsibly released from the federal government, back to our state and counties over time. This land belongs to the people of Nevada, not D.C. power brokers and bureaucrats. Nevadans deserve the right to decide how to cultivate and manage our lands and natural resources. 

It’s also critically important that we address the water crisis threatening our state. Entire Nevada communities are at risk of running out of water, if real solutions aren’t implemented soon. 

Nevada has led the lower basin states in conserving our most critical natural resource, but we still get the short end of the stick at the bargaining table. It’s time for our federal and state representatives to work together to forge solutions that fairly secure our water rights and water security.

Public Safety

I will oppose any effort by the extreme left to defund the police — which would cause irreparable harm to our communities. We see the damage that the anti-police movements have caused in cities like San Francisco, Portland, and New York. We don’t want that here in Nevada.

I stand with law enforcement, and I’m committed to fully funding and enhancing – not politicizing – public safety.

I believe we need leaders who are committed to pursuing justice against anyone who disregards public safety and the well-being of their fellow Americans.

Energy

We have been blessed with an abundance of natural resources, but we’ve also been plagued by politicians pushing extreme left energy agendas, like the Green New Deal, that raise prices and destroy jobs.

President Biden is systematically reversing all the progress we made through America First policies.

As Nevada’s next senator, I believe strongly in modern energy solutions that prioritize American energy jobs, protect consumers, and safeguard production in all forms.

It’s time to restore America First energy policies that unleash the full potential of American energy independence and strength. 

We can make it happen right here in Nevada. We have the natural resources to be a 21st century producer of American energy that brings jobs, energy security, and lower costs for consumers.

Foreign Policy

America is a force for good across the world, but Joe Biden has failed to lead and project strength internationally, damaging our reputation abroad and putting our national security at risk.   

For too long, politicians have used our unrivaled influence to intervene in matters that do not always have a direct impact on the security and well-being of Americans.

Such actions have come at incredibly high costs – claiming trillions of dollars and thousands of lives. Endless wars have endless costs, and I’m against both. 

The arrogance and weakness of D.C. elites have led to failed policies that open the door for adversaries like China to challenge the United States as the world leader.

The United States is the leader of the free world, but we can’t take on this responsibility alone. In the Senate, I’ll pressure the White House to make sure our allies follow through on their responsibilities and pay their fair share of alliance defense spending commitments.

American foreign policy must focus on protecting and preserving the interests of Americans today and into the future through military preparedness, peace through strength, international cooperation, and most especially accountability to the American people.

Veterans

The interests of Veterans should never be politicized. We need leaders who honor the sacrifices of Veterans and work to improve the lives of military personnel and their families.

I know the inefficiencies of bureaucracy and the impact it has on our veteran community. It’s the reason I started a small business that stepped in when the VA fell short, by providing critical medications to veterans in need of care. 

I am wholly committed to expanding on the improvements made by the Trump administration to the Department of Veterans Affairs, and I’ll work to build even more effective networks of support in the areas of healthcare, education, and occupational readiness.

Healthcare

Politicians have allowed bureaucrats to write healthcare laws, like Obamacare, that flood the marketplace with regulations — starving it of options — while driving up costs and lowering access to quality coverage.

We need conservative leaders who understand that competition — not government — drives medical innovations that lead to better care and lower costs.

Without burdensome government intervention, the marketplace and patients will be the driving force that solve the problems within our healthcare system. Not politicians!

I am fully committed to making healthcare more affordable for everyone, while preserving coverage for preexisting conditions.

Election Integrity

Every fraudulent vote cancels out a real vote. I want it to be easier to vote and harder to cheat. 

That’s why I’m committed to protecting one of our most sacred rights: the power to cast a ballot in an election. Passing election integrity legislation will be a top priority as a U.S. Senator.

Every day, Americans are required to present identification to access even the most basic services offered by private businesses and by local, state, and federal governments. It should be the same for any person casting a ballot in an election. 

Voter ID is a common sense and highly effective way to secure our elections immediately.

Life

I am pro life. I believe every life is precious — I learned that firsthand when I nearly lost my own life in Afghanistan. It’s shaped the way I view the world and mankind. It’s in our interest as a country and as human beings that we protect and value life — from the unborn to the everyday person.

Nevada voters have made it clear where they stand on this issue, by enshrining protections for abortion in our state law. As a U.S. Senator, I will not vote to overturn the decision of Nevadans - I will not support a national abortion ban.

I will oppose any bill that pushes for federal funding of abortion, late term abortions, or abortion without parental notification. And I will support federal judges who understand the importance of protecting life.

As a nation and as a society, we must do better in providing support for women — so they know they are not alone — and that they have options. We can do more to encourage life-saving alternative options, like adoption, while providing better pre- and postnatal care support and family planning services. We must come together, as a nation, to engage in honest dialogue to personalize — not politicize — this important issue and make sure all voices are heard.

Second Amendment

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

The Constitution unequivocally guarantees our right to bear arms.

As a Veteran and as a U.S. Senator, I will always fight to protect the Second Amendment.

Cancel Culture

Cancel culture is a destructive tactic used by the extreme left to stifle dissent and intimidate free thought — and it goes against the most fundamental American values.

It’s usually driven by a few loud individuals within a small segment of extremists looking to divide our national discourse.

This harmful social habit must not be encouraged or utilized by any elected leader.

Big Tech

Like President Trump, I’ve experienced firsthand how Big Tech works to undermine and silence conservative voices.

Big Tech companies routinely abuse their power through privacy invasions and the manipulation of public discourse through online censorship and suppression.

We must vigorously enforce antitrust laws to hold these companies accountable and protect the rights of Americans to speak freely.
