A: No, I don’t support vaccine mandates – at any level. While I have long encouraged folks to consult with their doctor and consider getting vaccinated, I don’t support the federal government mandating vaccines.
As the Biden administration took the decision to impose a vaccine mandate on business owners, I joined my Republican colleagues in introducing several measures to stop Biden’s mandates:
– The Protecting the Future of America’s Federal Contractors Act to prohibit a federal agency from unfairly evaluating a contractor’s ability to compete based on non-compliance with the federal contractor vaccine mandate (Lead).
– The Fairness for Federal Contractors Act (H.R. 6016) to prohibit the federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors (Co-sponsor).
– A Congressional Review Act to prevent the Department of Labor from having the OSHA regulation take effect (Co-signer).
– A Congressional Review Act to prevent the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services mandate from taking effect (Co-signer).
– A Supreme Court amicus curie brief asking the court to eliminate the OSHA vaccine mandate (Co-signer).
A: I did not vote to establish a vaccine database. There are many misconceptions surrounding H.R. 550, a bill that passed the House of Representatives on November 30, 2021. This bill does not have anything to do with COVID vaccine mandates, nor does it create a federal database. This bill also does not create a personal tracking system.
State immunization databases already exist; however, they are outdated and not secure. H.R. 550 enhances the cyber security of these existing state systems by mandating that immunization data is confidential. It would provide private citizens an extra layer of protection regarding their healthcare information and make the information easily transferable between states.

A: I have been a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment since my first day in office. I have been endorsed by the NRA. I have not and would not support legislation that would take the right to bear arms from Americans. I am an avid hunter and pro-2nd Amendment advocate.
I do not support red flag laws. The red flag provision in question was ultimately stripped from the final version of the NDAA that was signed into law last year, as expected. In support of its removal, I joined 158 of my colleagues on a letter urging removal of the “Red Flag” provision from the NDAA during the conference committee process when the bill was negotiated between the House and the Senate.
A: No, I do not support the U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, having voted against the House Resolution 503 that established the committee. As expected, it is a top-down, partisan committee being driven by Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat’s agenda. As the individual responsible for the security of the U.S. Capitol, Speaker Pelosi owes us all answers as to her actions and the lack of adequate security that day. It is clear that the current select committee will not provide those answers.
A: Americans deserve to have full confidence in their elections. I support and continue to support all efforts to identify and obtain changes in the 2020 vote counts following the election, including a commission to review the November election results, assess procedures and irregularities, and make recommendations to the states for reform.
Discrepancies regarding the validity of the 2020 election results were widely publicized. The hasty and incautious manner in which mail-in ballot systems were adopted created an opportunity for inaccuracy when guaranteeing that legitimate votes were cast and counted. Like most Americans, I believe that our election system was under unprecedented strain, and alongside individual states, Congress has a role to play to secure the integrity of our election system.
I campaigned for President Trump and Vice President Pence, and supported policies and efforts to bring prosperity to the people of Arkansas and individuals all across our nation. I wanted them to serve another four years to continue improving our national security and economic opportunities for individuals and families. I also supported all the president’s efforts to identify and obtain changes in the 2020 vote counts following the election. But despite 60 state and federal court cases, no changes were ordered, and all 50 states have completed their counts, recounts and they’ve certified the Electoral College results.
The Founding Fathers were clear in the Constitution that states have the responsibility for choosing electors – not members of Congress. That is why I voted to certify the election results. It was my Constitutional duty. I have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution and I’ll continue to do that.
A: I voted to support President Trump and his policies over 94% of the time.
I was a strong proponent of President Trump’s key policies, helping to guide their passage through the U.S. House of Representatives. A list of some of President Trump’s key policies I supported included the following:
– Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017
– Modern update of the North American trading system, now called USMCA.
– Repeal of Obama-Biden regulatory overreach.
– Repeal of Obamacare, which passed the U.S. House, but failed in the U.S. Senate.
– Efforts to defeat ISIS and hold accountable our foreign adversaries.
– Efforts to strengthen NATO member nations’ financial contributions to counter Russia.
– Funding to build the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and enhance homeland security.
