Today, I’m talking with Pete Sessions, the Republican candidate for Texas’s 17th congressional district.
Being completely open with you guys, I’m a registered Democrat. So you can imagine me and Mr. Sessions have some rather different viewpoints.
But this is what I love about this podcast being able to have open discussions with people who hold different views.
He’s very honest and willing to talk to me and explains the main points that set the Republicans and Democrats apart.
His focus is on justice, safety, and security, and he explains his long past working with the NRA, farming businesses, and pro-life institutions. He describes himself as pro-business, pro-people, pro-law enforcement, and pro-freedom.
Mr. Sessions has a lot of admirable qualities, and although I don’t agree with a lot of what he says, he opens my eyes up to a lot of Republican standpoints I didn’t understand before…
