Campaign themes


Bryson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Present and future environmental regulations on farms and ranches should undergo a rigorous cost-benefit analysis and must be based on scientific research. Farmers need to be able to make use of the latest in crop-protection materials, fertilizers, and biotechnology. They also need the freedom to trade in international markets for their products."

Budget & Spending

  • Excerpt: "We need greater transparency and more accountability in California budgeting and spending. We need the wise stewardship and responsible use of the people’s money. California's government should be able to live within its means."

Civil Liberties

  • Excerpt: "All people should be equal before the law and enjoy its equal protection. Justice should be blind, rather than giving special preferences or privileges to anyone. At the same time we must protect religious liberty and keep the government out of religion."


  • Excerpt: "A solid K-12 education is a civil right. Every child deserves the opportunity to have a good education. We need teachers who are successful in getting children to learn the subject matter."

Eminent Domain

  • Excerpt: "Eminent domain should be used only for public use, never to benefit one property owner at the expense of another. “Public use” should mean what it really means: core government operations such as public roads and public schools. Therefore, we should end condemnation by government of private property to be used for non-public uses, such as private residential and commercial developments."
