Lee Haywood: 

Public Safety- Will make sure our law enforcement agencies are fully funded and will fight any attempt by those who wish to reduce their numbers or diminish the protection they provide.

Education– Will work to open the education system, enabling parents to send their children to the school of their choice. National Debt– Will make the elimination of deficit spending his number one priority. Immigration– Supports the completion of the wall at our southern border and making naturalization to our country fair to those legal immigrants who wish to become American citizens.

Public Safety– Supports ​police reform to ban chokeholds and no knock warrants, create a national police database, establish national standards for policing, annual evaluation and training for officers; supports comprehensive background checks, red flag laws, banning bump stocks and high capacity magazines. Economic Development– Will ensure taxpayer dollars go toward supporting jobs in the United States and supports additional PPP loans being made available to small, minority and female owned businesses.
