Holds office U.S. House District 8
Candidate in race for U.S. House District 8
... "However, I do not believe in the legalization of narcotics. As a former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee, I believe strongly in enforcing our nation's drug laws and prosecuting those who break them.

In addition, I will keep your thoughts on this issue in mind should further legislation come to the House floor." ...
