Like every Nevadan, I grew up in awe of the American experiment. As children, we looked up to the flag and were proud of what it symbolized and what it stood for - freedom, opportunity, and promise. Back then, we knew both parties - despite their political differences - shared the same values. Today that is no longer the case.
Today’s Democratic Party has embraced a socialist, extremist agenda that hurts working class families, restricts freedom, and extinguishes opportunity for millions of Americans - particularly working class minorities who deserve the chance to give their families a better life. That’s why I voted for President Trump twice. That’s why I had an A+ rating from the NRA and their endorsement in my time in the state senate. I refused to compromise my pro-life, pro-2nd amendment values, even though it meant losing my state senate seat.
Though I’ve been a registered Democrat on paper my entire life, I made the switch to the Republican Party – because on some things, there’s simply no compromise.
