Why I’m Running

As a combat medic, I saw firsthand how Obama’s budget cuts put the lives of our servicemembers in jeopardy. Today, Joe Biden’s woke ideology is destructive to our nation, our livelihoods, and families. I served our country. I thought I was done. I was never political. Today, our nation is threatened by progressive policies, and it’s not enough to sit on the sidelines. I’m proud to enter the arena to protect our values for my friends, family, and neighbors

– Staff Sergeant Kane Smith
