Why are you running for office?
I’m running for Congress because it’s time for our leadership to reflect real Kentuckians — people like me who know what it’s like to grow up on a farm and to work to make ends meet. Who know what it’s like to work your way through school. Who know the meaning of public service.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
The biggest issues facing my community are access to healthcare and addressing the opioid epidemic. I propose helping by advocating for a public option, ensuring that insurance companies must provide fair and affordable plans for everyone, and holding the pharmaceutical companies that created the opioid epidemic accountable.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
By not separating ourselves by political affiliation and instead engaging in political conversations with everyone in our community.

What are your hobbies?
Hunting and fishing

The Last Stand of Fox Company: A True Story of U.S. Marines in Combat
