Shelly and I have carefully considered the impact a statewide race would have on our family, as well as if this is truly the path the Lord has for us. We have been praying over this decision for weeks.
We have concluded that at this time a campaign for attorney general would not be the right thing for our family. Our children are still of an age when Dad’s presence on a consistent basis counts for a lot.
