Asked why he decided to run, Wells says, “It really started with elected officials across the region worried about the Congressman being under criminal investigation.” Both Wells and Hunter are conservative Republicans.
To Wells, the race is primarily about character and integrity. In a thoughtful and in-depth interview, he also discussed some areas where his views differ, such as budget cutting priorities and restraint with nuclear weapons, as well as some initiatives of his own in healthcare and treatment of the mentally ill.
