A born and raised Mississippian, I've learned that two of the most important issues to our state are family and the Christian faith. I understand the importance of traditional Mississippi values, and I plan to keep all of these values in mind when I represent the Fourth Congressional District in Washington, D.C. Because of my beliefs and the shared beliefs of those in our wonderful state, I will fight in Washington to protect life, the sanctity of marriage, and our Mississippi values.
I believe that all children have the right to life, beginning at conception. I have been endorsed by the Mississippi Right to Life in each previous office I have held.
I also believe in the sanctity of marriage. Marriage is between a man and a woman, and the federal government should not be allowed to change the values set by individual states. I strongly support the Defense of Marriage Act, which permits states to enact a traditional marriage law in their own state government.
