Congressional district CA-45 is a red district.
Party registration on 9/2016 was about 42% Republican, 31% Democratic, and 27% No Party Preference/other. In all previous elections, the No Party Preference/other has voted heavily Republican, because the Republican candidate has always won by about a 20% margin. The Republican margin of victory has been between 40,000 to 67,000 votes every year! In the most recent (2016) election when Hillary Clinton won the district by 18,000 votes, the Republican congressional candidate won the district by a whopping 53,000 votes!
You should ask yourself, “In a district with a huge Republican voter advantage and history, can a Democrat win?”
I am asking traditional conservative Republicans and fiscally responsible Democrats to support me and join in an effort to make Washington more responsive to Americans. We need market-based policies that free small businesses from the regulatory burden of the past decade.
What can we do to get a responsive representative?
Ask yourself, “Are you better off with a pro-environment, pro-choice, Republican who is fiscally responsible and socially progressive or do you want the current Tea Party representative who is supporting bills that harm our district because she wants to earn Paul Ryan’s favor?” We need someone who will fight for free markets and reject massive government intervention that picks the winners and losers in our economy. Over the past decade, we have regulated ourselves out of jobs and created a form of crony capitalism that fixes our system for the establishment.

I will put AMERICANS first
I believe that we must prioritize spending. We must make choices that invest in Americans. Investing in Americans means prioritizing education and infrastructure projects that are shovel ready (roads and bridges). However, we must be responsible, we will not waste money on a “bridge to nowhere.” Both education and quality infrastructure projects must improve business efficiency and innovation, create jobs and make Orange County an ideal location to start a business.
Government spending must be examined to determine how it directly benefits Americans and frees businesses to creates jobs. I would prioritize infrastructure and education because better roads and bridges will increase business efficiency and will provide jobs. Educational investments foster innovation. Students who graduate without a heavy debt burden will start businesses that move our economy forward.
Government decisions need to focus on jobs and business efficiency.
I am Pro-Environment
I believe any representative must recognize that California is on the front line of climate change. Our research universities and our economy is benefiting from efforts to move away from a carbon-based economy. We need to continue to exploit our advantages in this area. On the flip side, we are also particularly vulnerable to drought and rising sea levels if our current representative continues to support policies which increase global warming.
I am Pro-Choice
I believe that government should not be making healthcare decisions for women. Government involvement in woman’s reproductive rights is a classic big government approach. Health choices should be made between a patient and their doctor.
