Racism is an internal belief, not a domestic threat

Q: Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

Don't force churches to accommodate transgender people

Q: Support Equality Act protecting LGBTQ persons from discrimination based on sexual orientation?

Daniel Gade: No. "The Equality Act forces churches to accommodate people who are transgender. Our religious freedom is under attack."

Mark Warner: Yes. Co-sponsored Equality Act. "Always wrong to fire a person simply for being gay or transgender."

Right to live in accordance with our religious principles

Our civil rights include the right to live in accordance with our religious principles, the right to unrestricted free speech and exchange of ideas, and the right to protect ourselves by keeping and bearing arms. This is the only way to ensure equal protection and justice for all, regardless of race, class, or creed.

2011: Against women in combat; 2017: Allow in whatever role

Gade wrote on a military blog in 2011 that allowing women in combat positions would be "to the gigantic detriment of the warfighters and our national security." Standards at military schools "WILL be decreased," Gade wrote. Gade told Reveal that his views have changed since then. "I now believe that anyone who can meet the physical and mental standards of the profession should be allowed into the profession in ground combat roles, and whatever role they qualify for."

Strongly anti-gender identity, according to AFA survey.

Gade opposes the AFA survey question on gender identity

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
