    Armed Services

    I believe in peace through strength. Our military combat capability has been reduced by two-thirds since I gave my first oath back in 1985, but we maintain worldwide commitments, which is stretching us to the breaking point. We need to retool our military with the latest technology, reduce the massive headquarters’ staffs, and reform our acquisition processes.

  • Budget


    I will support a Balanced Budget Amendment. We have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. We need to reduce the size of our bureaucracies in Washington, D.C.

    I am eager to rebuild America’s Military and restore readiness to the Joint Force on the House Armed Services, work to suppress burdensome and unnecessary regulations that stifle small businesses and the economy on the House Small Business Committee and represent the most productive farmers and ranchers in the world on the House Agriculture Committee.

  • Agriculture


    Agriculture is Nebraska’s number one industry and it affects the economy of the entire state, and I want to expand my background and understanding of these industries and their needs, so I can be a strong advocate on the House Agriculture Committee. Without the talent of these hard-working people, the entire industry would implode and adversely affect consumers.

    Foreign Policy

    We need to defeat ISIS with assertive leadership, our superior airpower, and special forces Iraq and other regional partners should be the lead with ground forces. Our regional partners will do this with strong American leadership, and leading from behind will not get the job done.
