Constitutional Liberties

We must respect the Constitution and the God-given rights it protects. As political hostility towards the Bill of Rights—particularly the right to bear arms and religious liberty—increases, Congress has a responsibility to uphold the Constitution and fight for the values upon which America was established.

U.S. Representatives take an oath to defend the Constitution, and I will continue to champion the principles outlined in our nation’s defining document, including personal freedoms, fiscal responsibility, and limited government. I am constantly reviewing the best ways to promote these principles in Congress and will work to ensure that the federal government upholds these values at every level.
