Protect Jobs. Create Opportunities.

Michigan can become an absolute economic powerhouse again. Under the Trump Administration, the country continues to experience record low unemployment rates across all sectors. But there is still work to be done to ensure all Michiganders willing to work can find meaningful employment. That will require a two-step strategy.

First, Mike will work each and every day to ensure there are avenues and safeguards to protect the gains we have made under the Trump Administration.

Second, Michiganders must be empowered in order to prosper in a freer and fairer market. The federal government should do what is necessary to help protect all American jobs and open up new markets abroad. We will work to simplify the tax code for both businesses and individuals, and encourage states like Michigan to follow suit.

Lower Costs. More Choice. Better Access.

According to a report from The Commonwealth Fund, the average combined premium and deductible cost for a worker in Michigan was $5,500 in 2017. WalletHub ranked the state 6th for cost and only 18th for access in 2018. Overall, they ranked Michigan 30th.

Michiganders deserve better. Together, we can lower costs, increase personal choice and better access while preserving protections for pre-existing conditions.

But it will require a real outsider who will stand up to the healthcare industry lobby in D.C.

Border Security. Fair Immigration Reform

The United States of America has a crisis at the southern border. Thousands of illegal border crossing occur each and every day. In March of 2019, authorities apprehended 92,607 immigrants who entered the country illegally, the highest monthly total in more than a decade.

Americans are the most generous people on Earth. But politicians, special interest and downright hostile actors have been taking advantage of our generosity for decades. The border crisis is a D.C.-created problem, the result of flawed public policy, outright corruption and a dereliction of duty.

It’ll take a D.C. outsider to fix a D.C. problem. With your support, here’s how Mike intends to solve it.

Second Amendment Gun Rights

As a lifelong gun owner, outdoorsman, hunter and someone who understands the fine line between freedom and tyranny, I am absolutely opposed to any infringement to our right to bear arms and will fight to my last ounce of my being to protect our second amendment and will not stand
for ANY abolition or restrictive changes to Michigan’s Constitution regarding gun ownership or right to carry



The sanctity of life must be protected. I believe God makes no mistakes and all life is precious,
beginning at conception.

“I will draft legislation that will mirror Ohio’s House Bill 493, The Heartbeat Law.”

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated
you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

~Jeremiah 1:5

Support for our Veterans

One of the biggest issues that plagues our Michigan Veterans that needs immediate action is the
level of help or lack thereof for our Michigan Veterans. Michigan suffers from a shortage of Veteran
Benefit Experts. In fact, we rank 48th in the country. Unacceptable. Out of over 600,000 veterans in
Michigan, the state has roughly 135 Veteran Service Officers. These experts or officers help our
veterans navigate Federal red tape to receive their promised benefits for service. 
As a Republican, I do not believe in growing government or bureaucracy. However, we need to
make sure our Veterans are taken care of. They fought for our freedom, sacrificed for our country
and put their lives on the line. Let’s make sure their needs are taken care of!
