The supreme court is the last line of defense for protecting the rights of the people; rights that include free speech, the right to bear arms, and due process of law. It is critically important we elect judges who are independent and unafraid. I demonstrated that type of courage as a state legislator and will continue to
be that type of justice on the supreme court.
