Interview excerpts:

Michigan Line 5 Pipeline

“If doing the same thing over and over again is insanity then closing down this pipeline after the effects of shutting down the Keystone Pipeline would tell me [President Biden] is insane. I just can’t imagine a scenario where anyone in the White House would say let’s shut down a pipeline and things will get better.”

Public School Vaccine Mandates

I’m very confident Texas public schools will not be enacting any vaccine mandates.  I believe that Governor Abbott and our state legislature will ensure that nothing like that happens here. Unfortunately, for kids in places like San Francisco and New York I don’t know that they’ll have those same guarantees, but I will fight tooth and nail any vaccine mandates in my state and I will also fight for the kids of San Francisco and New York as well.
