Dear State Central Committee,

Across Minnesota, from our vibrant cities to our peaceful farmlands, there’s a shared desire among us: to chase our dreams, manage our businesses, and support our families. We strive for excellent  education for our children and the freedom to raise them according to our values in a secure environment. We all agree that the government’s primary role is to safeguard the rights and security of its citizens.

This is why I am seeking reelection as the RNC’s national committeeman from Minnesota. With decades of service as a Marine officer, a corporate executive, a civic leader, and a hands-on volunteer, I have consistently stood firm for our values. As your committeeman, I have worked tirelessly alongside our RNC members, including fostering a solid relationship with the new chair, Michael Whatley, to ensure that Minnesota’s voice is heard loud and clear.

My role on strategic committees such as the presidential debates committee and the new faith advisory committee, which I am a founding member of, has been pivotal in shaping the national discourse towards the principles that are paramount to us here at home. I am resolute in my commitment to continue this work, ensuring that together, as a united front, we prioritize Minnesota’s interests within the RNC.

Reelecting me is a vote for a proven leader who advocates for what matters most to all of us. It is a pledge to ensure that Minnesota’s concerns and values are not just heard, but truly represented on a national stage by someone who intimately understands and is unwaveringly dedicated to our state. Let’s persist in our collaborative efforts for a brighter, more secure future.
