Biography: I live in Clifton with my wife and our four kids. I grew up in Virginia Beach and graduated from the College of William and Mary before moving to Northern Virginia. While I was working on the Hill, Operation Desert Storm was underway and seeing many young men and women called into service, I knew I couldn’t sit by the sidelines and I decided to quit my job and enlist in the U.S. Army.

After serving in the Army, I had the honor to continue serving our nation at the Pentagon and as a Congressional staffer. In 2002, I was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates where I proudly served for 17 years.

As a member of the General Assembly, I rose to be the third ranking Republican member of the House of Delegates. As a conservative representing Northern Virginia, I helped shape some of the most crucial legislation that made Virginia one of the safest and best places to work, live and raise a family.

As a Delegate, I was a consistent conservative. In 2019, I sponsored and passed a $1 billion tax cut returning monies to Virginia’s hard-working families. For seventeen years, I also defended the Second Amendment, voted to protect life, and worked to foster Virginia’s #1 ranking for business.

As Lieutenant Governor, I will work to position Virginia for a 21st Century economy, bring about a strong economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, defend your Constitutional rights, hold the line on additional tax increases, and stand up for our men and women in law enforcement.

 

Why you? When I left office as a member of the House of Delegates, Virginia was the number one state in the nation for business. We were number one because of the low tax and low regulation policies I helped craft. Unfortunately, under the Democrats’ one party rule, we are falling behind due to business closures and job losses caused by Democrats’ misguided policies of higher taxes and burdensome regulations. As Lieutenant Governor, I will work with the Virginia Senate and the business community to unwind these higher taxes and burdensome regulations and get us back to being the number one state in the nation for business. I am asking for Virginians to vote me for Lieutenant Governor because I am the pro-jobs and pro-business candidate with the record to show for it.

What are your priorities? Making Virginia the number one state for business again is my top priority. Nearly one in five small businesses closed their doors permanently last year. That is unacceptable. As Lieutenant Governor, I’ll fight for policies that empower small businesses and job creators. To start, I’ll work to repeal the mandates, regulations, and higher taxes that the Democrats have instituted since taking control of our legislature. I’ll also work to repeal the Democrats’ “Clean Energy Economy Act” that is driving up energy costs for Virginia families. Last but not least, I’ll work to repeal the Democrats’ so-called “Red Flag Law” that is a direct violation of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Personal Strengths: As a member of the House of Delegates, I am proud to say I always voted my principles and stuck to my convictions. As Lieutenant Governor, I will do the same.

What is the most important thing Virginians need to know about you?  I am a Christian, a conservative, a husband of 26 years, and a proud father of four. As Lieutenant Governor, I’ll continue to fight for Virginia families and Virginia businesses just as I did for 17 years as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates.
