  • McCormick’s campaign website said that his "unique experience in healthcare and in government spending make him the ideal candidate to find solutions for patient care and defend against the socialist agenda which would rob patients of access to and quality of services."

  • In a campaign ad, McCormick stated, "In Congress, I’ll protect America from the socialist fantasies of the left, stand up to the squad, build the wall, and double down on the Trump economy."
