May 18, 2018 Press Release
I applaud President Trump for keeping this key promise to voters, strengthening the wall between government funding and abortion industry giants like Planned Parenthood and adding protections for victims of sexual assault and human trafficking. With not one penny cut from family planning services, we can protect the value of every human life and place the interest and health of women ahead of the abortion agenda.

"Signing a scholarship with a university should not be a moratorium on an athlete’s ability to use his or her name and image, or to attain a livable wage for their talent.

Mitch McConnell should drop his threat to block rescissions affecting the omnibus.
Rescissions aren’t merely a Republican political maneuver against Democrats. President Clinton used the process 166 times to save more than $3.5 billion. While effective, the most recent package sent by President Trump is especially innocuous, politically speaking, clawing back unneeded, unspent funds, some of which were appropriated as far back as 1993.

Nobody should be surprised that the deal failed to rein in the world's largest sponsor of terrorism. At its core, the deal was destined to fail due to its inability to curb the Iranian Regime’s expansionist and destabilizing goals in the greater Middle East.

April 18, 2018 Press Release
The Ditto Act ensure the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) maintains the same record-keeping standards as the department expects from taxpayers.
"The bureaucratic failures of the IRS were on full display yesterday as they were unable to perform even a basic duty on their most critical day of the year. Another way the IRS is failing North Carolina taxpayers is with lack of accountability. Run for almost a decade by Commissioners who spent more time misleading Congress and attempting to bury scandals than they did serving Americans, the IRS has operated under a different set of rules than what they expect from taxpayers. The Ditto Act forces accountability on the IRS and ensures that they are working under the same rules as the people and businesses of North Carolina."
