Bipartisanship

More and more lately, folks across our nation have started to segregate themselves by ideology, but you won’t see me on cable news fighting with folks – I’m focused on getting things done.

There are issues that some people will never agree on, but I am a firm believer that there is more that unites us than divides us.
