How would you describe yourself to voters?

I am a self-motivated, highly educated, and driven professional eager to use my analytical and engineering background to take on and expand into new challenges. My tenacity, perseverance, and commitment has enabled me to succeed in areas where most others fail. I am rooted to the community through my family and my faith and, as such, believe I have a civic obligation to contribute to the betterment of my country.

What do you see as the top issues in this campaign?

I see inflation, illegal immigration/border security, crime, fentanyl/drug overdoses, and water scarcity as the top issues in this campaign.

What are the three greatest challenges facing Nevada, and how would you address them in Washington?

The three greatest challenges facing Nevada are inflation, water scarcity, and fentanyl/drug overdoses. I would address inflation by introducing legislation to restore our energy independence and incentivize reshoring of manufacturing and production in all industries where consumer demand for goods is high. I would address water scarcity by introducing legislation to appropriate funding for the construction of a water infrastructure, collection, and distribution nexus to recharge the existing water system serving the West and Southwest. I would address fentanyl/drug overdoses by introducing legislation to enhance security and enforcement at the border and increase penalties for drug smugglers.

Inflation has reached its highest levels in more than 40 years. What should Congress do to address the rising costs of living?

Congress should adopt legislation that would 1) return the country to energy independence by increasing both oil and natural gas production, 2) make it easier for companies to manufacture goods and commodities that Americans need and consume on a regular basis domestically, so that we're not so dependent on a supply chain that originates on the other side of the globe, and 3) incentivize and increase the labor-force participation rate over dependence on government assistance.

Would you vote to support/oppose a federal law that guarantees women across the country the right to an abortion?

I would vote to oppose a federal law that guarantees a national right to abortion.
