What are your top 2 priorities for action in Congress? (40 words max)

What will you do to support North Carolina students’ access to an affordable college education and relief from college debts? (30 words max)

To address school shootings, what specific policies, if any, do you support, such as do you support arming trained teachers or banning assault-style weapons? (30 words max)

What top 2 or 3 changes are needed for federal immigration policy? (30 words max)

Should government take action to raise the minimum wage and establish pay equity across race and gender for the same job – or should these be left to businesses? (briefly respond in 15 words maximum)

Should federal review under the Voting Rights Act be restored for changes to NC election law? Why or why not? (briefly respond in 15 words maximum)

My overall priority will be to reduce the size and scope of the Federal government. Washington has too much involvement in all of our lives. I will focus on ending our foreign military adventures and reforming our immigration policy.
Federal involvement in education has driven up costs and distorted the market. I will work to decrease Federal role in education.
Allow teachers to be armed, if they choose. End gun free zones which only serve to make schools prime targets. Banning "assault weapons" is useless.
Immigrants are a net benefit to our economy. While I favor ending quotas, at the very least, we should drastically raise the quotas on immigration.
There should be no minimum wage.
No to restoring federal review. We do need electoral reform of ending gerrymandered voting districts.

Experience (35 words max) I have served in Congress for three decades. I am on the Appropriations Committee, where I have fought for critical investments in our future. I am committed to expanding opportunity for all, not the few.
3 favorite endorsements for this election National Education Association; Equality NC; Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
Ensuring inclusive economic growth through investments in education and worker training, a fairer tax code, living wages, and affordable housing and transportation. Reforming our democracy by ending partisan gerrymandering, reducing money in politics, expanding voter registration, and reforming ethics laws.
We must do more to support access to higher education and relieve student loan debt. I support increasing Pell Grants, lowering loan interest rates, and expanding loan forgiveness.
We must close loopholes in background check system, expand gun violence restraining orders, ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and research the causes of gun violence--not arm teachers.
We must reunite families separated by President Trump, reform immigration enforcement, and provide a pathway to citizenship for individuals who are already part of our communities (including 700,000 Dreamers).
Yes. Workplace pay equity should be guaranteed to all Americans.
Yes. Federal review would protect these fundamental rights, which NC is systematically violating.
