THE ISSUES

Upholding our Constitution and Appointing Conservative Judges

Our Founding Fathers put the Constitution in place to decentralize and distribute Federal power. They knew that centralized, absolute power leads to corruption. That’s why we have three branches of the Federal government in Washington and many other powers reserved for state and local governments.

Military Past and Present

As a former Lt. Colonel and retired Air Force Reservist, Roger has long been at the forefront of military and veterans’ issues.  Roger vigorously supports the rebuilding of America’s military, and he led passage of a proposal, signed by President Trump this year, that ensures America’s Navy has no less than 355 ships. Roger is working to make sure Mississippi’s military communities and defense contractors continue playing a vital role in America’s defense.  For our former service members, he is committed to making the VA more responsive and accessible giving our vets more healthcare choices that are closer to home.

Reducing Burdensome Taxes

I voted for the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” which was enacted last year and which is now propelling our economy to new heights.  I strongly supported this measure to cut taxes and simplify the tax code because it prioritizes the success of American workers and middle class families.

Stopping Illegal Immigration and Protecting the Border

I oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants, and I believe the first step toward solving the illegal immigration problem is securing our borders. I support President Trump’s efforts to secure our border, and I support hiring more border patrol agents and increased use of technology to help stop or catch illegal immigrants. I also support stiffening penalties on employers who knowingly employ illegals.

Protecting 2nd Amendment Rights

The Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right of Americans. Roger has been a strong advocate of our Second Amendment rights and will continue to fight to protect law-abiding gun owners.

Education Is A Local Issue

Education is a local issue, which is why I worked to abolish No Child Left Behind. I support public schools and running our education system at a state and local level.
