I, like many other Americans, place my family as the center of my life, second only to God. Families are the backbone of this Nation. I was raised with strong family principles and understand how valuable those are to the accomplishments in my life as well as the one ahead. The love of family pushes each of us to improve our lives and the desire to improve the lives of our family. Every American that wishes to lead this Nation needs to have family values in order to resist the temptations of big money and special interests. A Public servant with family values will make decisions to improve Oklahoma not only for his family but for every American family in this great Nation.
