Issues

Defending the Second Amendment

We must defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. The United States Constitution is unambiguous: our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Period. I will stand up to efforts by the radical left to abolish the Second Amendment and confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens. I will defend the Constitution and vote to protect the God-given right of every lawful gun owner in the United States to keep America free.

Scorecard: Michelle has a lifetime “A” rating with the National Rifle Association.

Protecting Life 

We must protect the unborn, who have the fundamental right to life, and defend the sanctity of innocent human life at all stages. I will stand up to efforts by the radical left to promote infanticide and taxpayer-funded abortions for illegal immigrants. I am proudly pro-life and will always support legislation that protects innocent human life and defends the sanctity of life at all stages.

Scorecard: Michelle has a lifetime voting record on pro-life legislation of 100% with the Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life.

Securing Our Borders 

We must secure our borders and build the southern border wall. Michelle will stand up to efforts by the radical left to abolish Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and promote open borders and sanctuary cities. She will work with law enforcement officials to restore the rule law and order and is committed to helping President Trump finish the southern border wall and support our ICE agents as they remove unlawful entrants and violent gang members from our county to keep America safe.

Supporting Our Farmers

We must support our farmers and ranchers, who are the backbone of our economy, and rebuild our outdated infrastructure in western Minnesota to create greater rural prosperity. Too often our farmers and ranchers face unnecessary challenges that hamper their ability to bring their goods to the market. I will work with President Trump to rebuild rural Minnesota’s infrastructure, support efforts to secure good trade deals for our farmers, and invest in workforce development programs that prepare our workers for the jobs of tomorrow.

Honoring Our Veterans

We must honor our commitment to the brave men and women of our United States military, who make great sacrifices to protect our country and keep America safe. While serving, we must make sure they have the tools they need to complete their mission. After serving, our veterans deserve to be welcomed home with honor by a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that puts them and their families first. I will help President Trump rebuild our military and keep America strong, and I will fight for our veterans to ensure they have access to world-class health care and workforce development programs.

Fixing Our Broken Healthcare System

We must fix our broken health care system to give American families better access to high-quality, affordable health care plans. Obamacare was a disaster that took important health care choices away from millions of Americans. I will work with President Trump to protect the promises we have made to our seniors and pass patient-centered reforms that increase competition and lower costs, without sacrificing protections for individuals with preexisting conditions.
