I’m running for the people of West Virginia, because I love this state. West Virginia has been home to my family for generations, and I’m proud to raise my family here. We are facing serious challenges that require our best leaders. We're deeply divided, our representatives in Congress lack the courage and the will to act. We need a fresh, new generation of leaders who can unite us, keep us healthy, rebuild our economy, and bring "service" back into public service. Now, more than ever, we need service-minded people—people who put patriotism over politics and purpose over party— to step up and lead. My experience serving in Iraq and work with veterans taught me how to bring communities together to get things done.
