Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Tucker's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Funding Education

  • Excerpt: "We need a renaissance within Oklahoma education. One that focuses on funding, similarly to Governor Walters’ early 1990′s funding initiatives. One that realizes that teachers are the true provider of rigor in the classroom, not punitive state standards. I want to work with the new State Superintendent to help lead this renaissance."

Education is Economics

  • Excerpt: "We need to invest back into our future and into making Oklahoma one of the most desirable places to live and to operate a business in. Not because we’re the cheapest, but because we offer a complete system for continued business viability and prosperity."

Grow Your Own Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We, as a state, need to modernize the way that we provide support to our leading job creators and find a balance between supporting them and recruiting big business to the state."

Affordable Health Care

  • Excerpt: "If we don’t accept the federal government’s funding, then we must come forth with a plan that is both advantageous for those in dire need of medical coverage and the taxpayer who will fund these programs."

Guns

  • Excerpt: "I have no desire to author or sponsor any legislation that infringes upon one’s right to own a gun who is mentally and legally eligible."
