In His Own Words
"Were it not for strong women in my life, I would not be where I am today. I’m appalled at the attacks from Washington politicians on women. Let me be clear: I am against cuts to Planned Parenthood and will continue to fight any attempts to defund the important programs they provide. I also support more protections in the workplace, like the Paycheck Fairness Act, to finally close the gender pay gap. As the father of both a daughter and a son, my children should have the same opportunities, regardless of their gender." 1
