The key to North Carolina's success is through our schools, from kindergarten to our community colleges and universities.
We must ensure that our students have the tools necessary to succeed in our global economy, but testing is not the answer.
Common Core Standards put corporations and Washington bureaucrats ahead of teachers and parents. North Carolina must have its own rigorous standards.
Teaching is a valuable profession and they deserve the utmost respect. While NC Republicans have done a good job raising teacher pay, more must be done.
Our government, state & federal, has gotten too big, its reach too far and its burden too great.
We need to improve North Carolina's business climate to grow jobs and improve our economy.
Taxes must be low and competitive with other states.
We need to cut government red tape to improve efficiency.
We need to cut wasteful government spending so our tax dollars are used effectively.
Protecting Our Rights
Our rights do not come from government. Rather, our rights come from Almighty God.
The most fundamental right is life. We must protect life and advocate for the unborn.
The voters overwhelmingly voted to define marriage and we must preserve marriage.
Our right to keep and bear arms must be protected.
Illegal immigration must be stopped in North Carolina.
Property rights must be protected and fracking violates those rights.
