Issue Position: Farmers

Jan. 1, 2019

Matt Barton will stand with our farmers. They are vital to the local economy.

Issue Position: Party Affiliation

Jan. 1, 2019

Matt is a conservative Republican. No question about it. Matt has NEVER been part of another party or supported parts of another party's platform. Matt's core beliefs leave no room for compromise. We CANNOT send someone to Atlanta that may waiver. The risk is too high and too much is at stake!

Issue Position: Voting Record

Jan. 1, 2019

Matt is the ONLY one in this race with a verifiable voting record. He has consistently voted to save taxes keep government small. It is there to see.
