Questions & Answers

1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (50 word limit)

I have a record of bringing real change on key issues. As Speaker of the House, I advanced domestically produced fuels. That proves I can work with both parties to lower the price of fuel for Missourians. I also have a record of expanding healthcare coverage and veterans benefits.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (50 word limit)

We must change the priorities in Washington. I'll continue advancing domestically produced fuels so we aren't relying on foreign oil that makes expensive gas. I'll reduce dependence on foreign debt and trade as well. I'll work for cheaper healthcare for all Americans and better care for veterans in particular.
