Children must come first when it comes to education. Instead, the teacher’s unions came first during the pandemic to the detriment of our children’s future.
We must make sure that every child has access to a high-quality education, that is full-time in a classroom. That’s why as a mother and advocate for children, Taylor knows the value of a high-quality education. Working for Teach For America and in the governor’s office, Taylor helped to ensure that more children have great teachers in front of the classroom and that, regardless of zip code, have access to a good education.
Children aren’t the only stakeholders in our education system. Parents have lost control over what is being taught to their children and what opportunities their children will have to succeed. It’s time we put parents back in control of their own children’s education. Somehow we have gotten away from preparing our children to succeed in the 21st century and instead are indoctrinating them with a radical social agenda. It’s time to get our education priorities back in check.
We have a big education fight on our hands, but Taylor Keeney is not afraid to stand up to the teacher’s unions.

Jobs & the Economy
Washington’s spending has been out of control for too long, but acknowledging the problem hasn’t seemed to make it any better. To cut taxes, restrain spending, and grow the economy, it’s clear: we need to clean house and send new people to Congress.
Right now, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress think their only job is finding bigger and bigger checks to write, like the budget-busting Green New Deal. Fiscal responsibility has gone out the window for the Biden Administration. Even with his massive tax hikes, the Biden budget will still have us spending at deficit levels unseen since WWII.
Where do they think this money will come from? Here’s the real answer: the money to finance these liberal wish lists will come from the pockets of regular Americans like you. Taylor will fight to block the Biden tax increase and his trillions in unnecessary spending.
Big government handouts are hurting our economy and our fiscal future, leading to small business owners struggling to hire workers and massive inflation across the board. Not only will Taylor fight Washington’s big spending, she will work to make sure Main Street flourishes by supporting our small businesses and helping them grow.

Right To Life
Taylor is pro-life and will support policies that promote the dignity of human life. For her, that’s not just a conviction - it’s a calling.
When Taylor learned that there was a gap in our ecosystem of support in Central Virginia to ensure that babies and young children have the basic essentials they need to not just survive but thrive, she founded Little Hands Virginia to help support families in need in our community. In just two years, Little Hands has reached over 1,000 children working with more than 50 local partners to identify families in need of assistance.
She also knows first-hand the importance of strengthening our adoption and foster care systems in America so that all children have the opportunity to lead healthy and prosperous lives. It’s an issue she is passionate about and has worked on since her time in the governor’s office.

As a gun owner and constitutional conservative, Taylor strongly believes in the importance of our right to keep and bear arms. She will defend every American’s Second Amendment rights. In Congress, Taylor will push back against gun grabbing liberals and protect our constitutional rights.

There’s no excuse for Washington’s inability to secure our border. Whether we use physical barriers or technological solutions to secure the border, it’s past time to get the job done.
Taylor has been to the border. She has seen the mess we have created by not being strong on immigration. It’s not enough to secure our borders - we must also stop luring illegal immigrants across the border with hypocritical policies. We have to put an end to illegal immigration, and end to sanctuary cities, and have a fair and just system in our country.

Agriculture is the largest private industry in Virginia and Taylor will fight for our farmers and growers in Congress. When big-city liberals take control of the government, too often, rural Americans are left behind.
America's agricultural producers deserve a federal government that works with them, not against them. This includes advocating for key investments in biodiesel, increasing demand for our key regional crops including soybeans and corn, and supporting trade policies that put American farmers first.
Our farmers know their land better than a Washington bureaucrat. Whether it's burdensome regulations or crushing taxation, Taylor will stand up for our farmers.
With Social Security, our nation made a promise to America's seniors. This is their retirement plan. While we... READ MORE

China and American Competitiveness
Washington has allowed Beijing to eat our lunch for too long. Whether it’s cyber attacks or economic aggression, they have let China rise at America’s expense. In the meantime, too many of our leaders in Washington have responded to China’s increasing strength by increasing our weakness.
That’s unacceptable. Taylor is not afraid to stand up to China and stand up for American workers and businesses and that is what she will do in Congress.

Military & Veterans
Taylor knows first-hand the importance of a strong military and the hardship military service has on families. Her brother is an active-duty officer in the U.S. Navy stationed in Norfolk. She watched him leave on deployment just days after his daughter was born, and provide care and comfort to family and friends of fallen comrades. We owe everything to our military and veterans who have given so much for our country.
Taylor will fight for our military and veterans in Virginia, ensure that we have a strong national defense and make sure Virginia’s military facilities are a top-priority. She has worked on military issues ranging from Virginia’s V3 program to ensuring military spouses can get expedited licenses for jobs when they move in-state. Yet too often, the federal government lets our heroes down, like in the case of VA hospital service delays and back VA benefits.
Taylor will defend our nation’s military and veterans and ensure we keep our promises to those who serve.

Any American who’s paid a medical bill knows our healthcare system is out of control.
Democrats want you to believe that the solution is a total government takeover of healthcare: socialized medicine. But so many of the problems we face in healthcare were started by heavy handed government interventions in the first place. The last year has proven what we already knew - that a government takeover is definitely not the solution.
We are in desperate need of fresh ideas and new solutions to provide high-quality, low cost healthcare. Taylor will work to pass real-world, market-based solutions that reign in out-of-control costs and protect coverage for pre-existing conditions without sacrificing the freedom to choose our own healthcare.

Israel is under constant threat and often attacks in the Middle East from terrorist organizations and hostile regimes. As Israel’s closest ally, Taylor believes it is America’s duty to stand with and defend Israel not just abroad but also here at home.
This never used to be a partisan issue, but Nancy Pelosi and our current representative let blatant antisemitism from members of their party go unchecked and continue to allow the anti-Israel ‘Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement’ grow on Capitol Hill.
Their failure to stand up to and condemn this behavior sent a message through the ranks of their party that antisemitism by their members will be tolerated and never condemned.
When Taylor gets to Congress she will stand with Israel, ensuring they have the resources they need to keep their country safe from terrorism. Taylor won’t just make hollow promises, she will fight to ensure Israel has another ally in Congress and that members who engage in anti-Semitic behavior are held accountable.

When Virginia’s law enforcement needed support, our Democratic representative stayed silent. Meanwhile, just days after the riots on Broad Street, Taylor was at the Richmond Police Department headquarters delivering baby items for a family and she continues to work alongside law enforcement to aid their community outreach efforts. Actions speak louder than words and she is proud to walk beside, and stand up for, our law enforcement.
While our current Representative has vowed never to utter the phrase "defund the police" again, she has yet to stand up to Nancy Pelosi and her caucus who are determined to devalue and defund our police.
Virginia has seen a spike in violent crimes in 2020, homicides in Virginia are at the highest levels in two decades. Our communities have been made less safe by the attacks and attempts at dismantling our police forces. Our law enforcement needs strong defenders in Congress. Taylor will support our police every day - she will not stay silent.
Taylor’s commitment to the community and public safety goes beyond supporting law enforcement. Long a believer that everyone deserves a second chance, she knows the value of prisoner reentry programs and alternative sentencing when someone is really in need of help - not jail time. That’s why when she launched Little Hands, prisoner re-entry and substance abuse recovery programs were among the organization’s first partners. It is well beyond time that we reform our criminal justice system and at the same time make sure that everyone who has done their time has the support needed to be productive members of society when they re-enter the community.

It’s clear that there is a fundamental and dangerous lack of faith in our elections. It’s an issue people on the right and left have been talking about for 20 years. But HR-1, the Democrats’ radical takeover of our election system, would only make the problem worse.
The time has come to take action to preserve the integrity of our electoral process. We need real election reform in this country that ensures the integrity of our elections. This includes preventing fraud and nationwide voter ID.
