Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times but the deck is still stacked for those at the top. I'm running for President because everyday Americans and their families need a champion and I want to be that champion. When our families are strong, America's strong.

For me, it isn't enough for American families just to get by, you deserve to get ahead and stay ahead. It's your time.
