“I am running to rebuild the family and renew the culture. That is why
I am in this race. These are the core issues I have worked on in the
U.S. Senate; it’s what I have worked on in the House. At the core, we
have got to rebuild the basic institutions in this society. Those are
things I am pushing aggressively.”
