Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
“I am most passionate about access to high-quality education for all people. This starts in a well-funded pre-K program, all-day kindergarten, and extends into education through high school graduation. Education that offers children their most strong chance at success differs from child to child. We must rely on experts in childhood education to offer their students the opportunities to succeed.”
“Defending the Constitution is paramount and is the struggle of our age. We must fight for our fundamental rights and our freedoms. Government overreach must stop. No more mandates. We must resist the insanity of the cultural revolution underway in our country. It is divisive and toxic to our unity. Unity is our strength. It is a fight for the soul of America.”
