The American Conservative Union named me as a "House ACU Conservative.". As the Chattanoogan said " The ACU Conservative award is considered the gold standard of lawmaker ratings, and is given only to those who receive scores of 80 percent or above in the American Conservative Union's ratings of Congress."
I ran for Congress to represent commonsense conservative values and am pleased that a top conservative organization such as the ACU has recognized my work. I have worked tirelessly to support legislation that will reduce the size of government, protect the unborn, and return our nation to its founding Constitutional principles.
I also received the endorsement of the United States Chamber of Commerce, which has a goal of electing a pro-business majority in Congress and works diligently in support of interests of businesses large and small to advance legislation that encourages economic growth, job creation, and a less intrusive federal government. I will continue to fight for small businesses and private-sector job growth in the United States. I ran a business for 25 years and know the challenges they face each day. That is also why I introduced my own jobs plan that is based on a less intrusive federal government, and undoing the harmful policies and regulations put in place by the Obama Administration. I am the proven conservative that businessmen and women can count on to continue fighting for them in Congress
