I first ran for office because Arizona had a Republican Legislature that routinely rolled over for Governor Napolitano and passed bloated budgets and liberal bills. Once I got elected I went to work organizing conservatives, first into the Liberty Caucus, and later into a functioning majority. As we made gains, we shrunk Arizona's budget, cut regulations, and created an environment that encouraged job creation. We also tackled border security and illegal immigration like no other state in the country. I was proud to be the House author of SB1070 and to have passed legislation giving our local law enforcement the tools they needed to do their jobs.
- Our budget is balanced
- Arizona is a national leader in protecting the unborn
- We're #1 in the nation for Second Amendment rights
- We're among the best states for property rights, regulation reform, and countless other measures
- We turned our Republican majority into a conservative majority, we cast the tough votes, and we turned Arizona around.
