Campaign themes


Jarchow's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

  • Excerpt: "If elected, my top priority will be creating good middle-class jobs for the hard working families of Western Wisconsin. While Wisconsin’s unemployment rate has declined over the past 3 years, we have a lot of work left to do."

Tax Reform

  • Excerpt: "We still have too many businesses that can’t start, can’t grow and can’t great good jobs. We still have too many Wisconsinites choosing to move to other lower-tax states for retirement. This must stop. The way to stop it is to dramatically reform and reduce taxes."

Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt: "One of Adam‘s goals will be reduce Wisconsin’s long term debt. It’s simply unfair to our children and grandchildren to borrow from them. Government needs to pay for things as it goes, just as hard-working families all across our state do every day."


  • Excerpt: "It’s time for a revolution in education. The fact of the matter is that too many of our rural school-children are being left behind. It is imperative that this stop now. Every child in every corner of our state has the right to a quality education. This means we must do a better job of teaching science, math, reading and writing."
  • Excerpt: "Without a strong base in these areas, today’s jobs will be out of reach. This cannot happen. We have all of the tools necessary to bring a world-class education to every student, but we must begin using these tools. Instead of fighting the same tired, old battles, let’s starting working together to give each and every child in Wisconsin a great education!"

Protecting our Sporting Heritage

  • Excerpt: "This means protecting our woods and protecting our waters. It also means making the most of our other natural resources like our fish stock and our deer herd. Finally, if elected, Adam will be a fierce advocate for protecting our 2nd Amendment rights."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Wisconsin scorecards, email suggestions to
