Bobby Schilling is one of us.
He's a father, a husband, and a small business owner. He built his home from the ground up, and built his business from scratch.
He understands how to create jobs because he's created jobs at his pizzeria, St. Giuseppe's.
He understands how to balance a budget because he's managed a payroll and kept a checkbook. He understands how to lead by example because he's been doing it his entire life.
There are a lot of lies about Bobby Schilling happening on the airwaves right now, and that's unfortunate. I hope that people will take the time to find out more about who he is. Bobby Schilling is a good man, and he's done good work for this country the last two years.
I'm happy to give him my vote on Nov. 6th.
