• Nothing is more important than National Security, and defending our country from those who would do us harm.
  • I am committed to ensuring our men and women in uniform have all tools necessary to do their jobs, both at home and overseas. We need ensure military spending effectively and efficiently battles terrorism, and resurgent threats posed by Russia and China. Our strength and resolve is a powerful force for global stability.
  • I am committed to reducing the deficit, but believe we should never balance the budget at the expense of making America less safe, or less prepared to ensuring national defense.
  • I also know the costs of war, and believe that as we deal with threats around the globe we need to make sure we rely upon all instruments of national power at our disposal, not just our military might.
