National Positions

Securing Our Southern Border 

President Biden’s open border policies are not working. We need to be enforcing our immigration laws to stop illegal immigration, secure our border and end the humanitarian crisis that has come as a result of President Biden’s failed immigration policies. We also need to make sure law enforcement, and other agencies who are responsible for keeping our border secure, have the tools they need to do their job.

I believe in providing transparency and support for legal immigration, and I support DACA. 

Justice for All

We all have a role in stopping domestic violence and sexual abuse throughout Alaska. As Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs, I led the implementation of Operation Lady Justice – a task force to combat the crisis of missing & murdered Native Americans. To arrest these alarming trends, we must commit to education, partnership, advocacy, and intervention. It will take all of us working together.  Just as I have done in the past, I will continue to work to stomp out this scourge while serving you in Washington, D.C. 

Roe v. Wade

I support a straight codification of Roe v. Wade.


  • Love wins. I believe that two adults who love each other should have the option to get married.
  • I do not support biological males being able to compete in women’s sports. However, I do believe we should consider creating opportunities for transgender males or females to compete within their own designations.
  • I strongly believe that as a society we should lead with compassion. We need to provide the necessary support networks for those either struggling with their own gender or sexual orientation, or those who are out & proud. I stand by my Iñupiaq value, Nagliktuutiqaġniq, Compassion. I will fight to preserve compassion towards the LGBTQ+ community- every day.
I am focused on delivering results for Alaska. We need a robust economy, strong labor force, and healthy communities. We need to promote development of our natural resources, maximize our strategic location in the interest of national security and arrest the growing trends of social challenges impacting Alaskans and our communities. I want to build upon Alaska's strong foundation and focus on the opportunities for the future."
