I regret to inform everyone that I must suspend my campaign effective August 1, 2022.
This isn't a decision I take lightly, but I must take time to focus on what is most important in my life. In the months since I began this campaign, my life has taken a number of turns. An increased workload at my day job, brighter prospects for my personal future, and the very real chance that I will move out of this district are all contributing factors to this decision.
I still believe that District 27 is best served by a patriot, a believer in the Constitution and the founding ideals of our Republic. Someone who represents the people, not parties or special interests, and that is not something the incumbent can state honestly. Although I still wish to be that person, I understand that circumstances have prevented me from committing myself to this course of action.
Fortunately for all of us, many of the issues I felt were most important to me have been resolved. Tennesseans have greater medical liberty than in the dark days of the false pandemic. We enjoy the benefits of a commitment to the rights enshrined in the Second Amendment. Our schools, while not yet the model they deserve to be, have protection against some of the most hateful and divisive ideologies this state has seen since the Civil War. These advances (made largely in spite of, not because of, the incumbent's actions) make me proud to be a citizen of the Volunteer State.
There is still much work to be done, however. At the local, county, and state levels, we can always do more to ensure that future generations continue to benefit from the freedoms we sometimes take for granted. I will continue to support great causes and movements such as the Mises Caucus, and I hope you will do the same.
Thank you for all your support.
