Beyond the 13 survey questions we asked each candidate on our voter guides, each candidate who answered the survey was given the opportunity, if they so chose, to respond to the following five essay questions in 300 words or less. On this page are the specific candidate’s answers. If a candidate answered some, but not all, of the questions, each unanswered question is marked as “No answer was provided.”

What particular regulations of abortion would you support or oppose and why?
I would support the abortion if the person was raped or if the conception occurred with an unwilling participant; however, there needs to be legal documentation to support such a claim.
Do you believe parent(s) or government have the primary and ultimate responsibility for the education of children? Please provide at least one example that you believe demonstrates what you mean.
I believe that parents are ultimately responsible for their children’s education because they birthed the child into this world, and no one is more responsible than the ones who created the life of the child.
