My family fully supports my candidacy. My wife is a Polish immigrant who came to America legally. She grew up under Communism. She loves America and is frightened to see the socialist trends in our federal and local policies.
My children are hard-working and law-abiding. Democrat economic policies are failing the working class. Also, they experienced first-hand the attacks on our family for standing up against racism.
My grandchildren understand living in an ethnically diverse culture. They all have Native American heritage. Their grandmother is a proud member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe. They want the American freedom and opportunity that has been available to the generations before them.
