The hardworking people of Western North Carolina have been let down by both political parties over the years. Politicians rig the game for big businesses, but leave small-town America to fend for itself. I know firsthand because I’ve been a farmer and a small business owner, and I know the pressures of trying to make it from paycheck to paycheck. The people of Western North Carolina don't want a handout. They deserve their fair shot at the American Dream. If I’m elected to represent the 11th District in Congress I’ll never forget who I’m working for.
