Sec. Rick Perry
Former Secretary of Energy Rick Perry served as the 14th Secretary of Energy. Prior to joining the Administration, Perry served as the 47th Governor of Texas.

Perry is a veteran of the United States Air Force, having flown C-130 tactical airlift aircraft in Europe and the Middle East. He is deeply involved with supporting the active duty and veteran community, both as Governor and as Secretary of Energy.
Candace Owens is the founder of the BLEXIT foundation, an organization dedicated to driving conservative principles into urban communities. She is also a published author, speaker, and host of the weekly "Candace Owens Show"
Owens exploded onto the scene in the summer of 2017, gaining notoriety through her political vlog series on YouTube. She has since spoken at over 60 American Universities, challenging the leftist status quo and insisting that students think beyond the confines of liberal orthodoxy. With over 250 Fox News appearances, Owens has substantiated herself as a leader among the growing youth conservative movement. Prior to her entrepreneurial pursuits, Owens worked at a private equity firm in Manhattan, serving as the Vice President to their administration. She attended the University of Rhode Island and took executive training courses at the NYU Stern School of Business.
Candace views it as her life's mission to help minority groups escape the left's victim narrative.
