Law & Order

The United States is a nation founded on the rule of law. I am committed to supporting law and order in our country and working to keep our communities safe. Our nation saw an unprecedented spike in murders in 2020, particularly in cities where there were efforts to defund or undermine our law enforcement officers. Although reforms are needed to ensure safer interactions with the police, defunding law enforcement is certainly not a viable option, and stripping them of their ability to keep us safe is a dangerous path for our nation. I support common sense reforms to our justice system, including better training, an end to the use of choke holds, and increased transparency, but we must ensure those reforms do not hinder law enforcement’s ability to act in the moments when we need them most.
