What office are you running for?
US Senate from Mississippi
With which party are you running for office?
Primary March 10th
Why are you running for office?
I feel it’s a moral imperative. If I wasn’t, the issues I believe in strongly wouldn’t be represented at all on the Mississippi ballot. If you don’t see anyone pushing for the change, you’ve gotta BE the change.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
A severe lack of healthcare. I’ve had multiple friends die, and I believe most of them would still be alive if we had Medicare for All.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
Ranked-Choice Voting. That would encourage lesser extremes in candidates, making hateful rhetoric potentially damaging to candidates.
Who is your hero?
I’m 36. I no longer have a hero.
What are your hobbies?
Tabletop games and reading.
What is the most recent book you read?
The Last American Vampire by Seth Grahame-Smith
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
No, but if you have a lead on the latter, I help destroy it with you.
How can our readers get involved in your campaign?
Spread the word of the campaign, especially to the younger generation who don’t typically vote in Mississippi.
What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?
What issues are you focused on?
Medicare for All, Cannabis Legalization, Ranked-Choice Voting, Election and Campaign Finance reform.
