Describe how you see Congress’ role at this stage of the coronavirus pandemic.
Congress must continue to ensure President Trump has the public health resources necessary to fight the (coronavirus), while avoiding unconstitutional overreach. When it comes to the economy, the federal government needs to get out of the way and stop shackling our children with additional debt.
What should be done about DREAMers, the young adult immigrants brought to this country illegally as children?

Do you support legalizing marijuana at the federal level?
I do not support legalizing marijuana at the federal level.
What events do you have planned for voters to get to know you better?
Team Cowan is working hard to get out the word ahead of Aug. 11. I’m looking forward to meeting with voters and discussing my plan to be a conservative fighter for Northwest Georgians.
