“As a lifelong resident of Minnesota, I will be an advocate for the conservative values of our communities and ensure that we have a voice that is heard in Saint Paul. Some of my core values include that life starts at conception, defending the 2nd amendment, protecting sanctity of life, preserving small businesses, and reinforcing election integrity. It will be my privilege to be the voice for District 5B at the state capital.”
