As the mother of a Marine veteran and daughter of an Air Force pilot and Army Nurse, nothing is more important to me than keeping our country safe.

Today, we face nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran, and we must do everything possible to end these threats including a strong military presence in the Korean Peninsula and the Middle East, further development of our layered missile defense system, and a fully staffed state department.

Furthermore, we must remain diligent in our mission to destroy ISIS and provide local law enforcement the tools they need to stop terrorism on American soil.
