In the Bible, God says, “It is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfill it.” (Ecclesiastes 5:5, NIV) In contrast to other politicians, I intend to keep my word and follow through on the promises I make. As a way to hold myself accountable to the public, I will record the promises I make on this page as a “Promise Wall.”

Promise #1:

“If elected to the U.S. Congress I will not vote $1 for Planned Parenthood! I don’t care if Speaker Ryan himself brings the bill gift-wrapped and lays it at my feet. I will let the government shut down before I vote to commit your tax dollars to this grisly business.”

If you see a promise I made that is missing from the Wall, please contact me about it using the form below or emailing me directly at
