The American Way Is Under Attack.   I Will Defend Our Country.   I Will Defend Maryland.   Together, We Can Make The Changes You Want To See.

I am a Republican.  I represent the party of Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick Douglas; the same political party that fought and sometimes died to free my slave ancestors and to keep our country unified when dark forces tried to split it apart.

Berney and I are battle buddies. We are life long friends. We served together in Iraq and here in the states.  You will find no better friend than Berney.  Berney always has your back and would never leave a soldier on the battlefield.  I make a promise to his district and this nation: You will not find a better person to serve you and your family in Congress.  I encouraged him to run for Congress because he’s a good man, a strong Conservative and the kind of leader that we need  today in Congress.
