The CandidateScott Herndon
Republican for State Senate, District 1
“Have you had enough of Republicans who campaign as conservatives, but then govern like socialists? Have you had enough of politicians who say they are 100% pro-life, but then take no significant action to put an end to abortion, or worse, get high ratings from Planned Parenthood? Have you had enough of “conservatives” who say they will cut government but then increase spending, raise fees, and approve of more government regulations? Have you had enough of politicians who promise to preserve traditional moral values, but vote for legislation that undermines those same values? Are you sick and tired of politicians who do not follow the constitution after promising to do so?”Scott Herndon
“Limited government, not of arbitrary limits, but rather according to the Jeffersonian principle: ‘In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution’.”Scott Herndon
