Campos served in the U.S. Army after high school before earning his B.S. in Accounting from Long Beach State University. He has worked as a certified public accountant since then. Campos is currently a senior partner at G7 Certified Public Accountants, Inc.
Campos' campaign website lists the following issues:
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "Stop the deficit spending, eliminate the waste, balance the budget and restore accountability. Why is it that we as citizens are required to live within our means and if we don’t we face consequences such as the inability to attain credit or even worse the loss of our property?"
- Limited Government
- Excerpt: "The role of the government is to exercise only those limited powers given to it by the people. Chief among them is protecting its citizens against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
- Promote Free Market System
- Excerpt: "American exceptionalism is based on the generation of Ideas using ingenuity and creativity in finding solutions to meet the demands of a free society. Entrepreneurship, hard work, responsibility and discipline should be encouraged and seen as something to emulate. These are the traits which make America the greatest country in the world."
- Excerpt: "All appropriation bills should be made available on the internet for review by the public for at least 20 days prior to being considered into law. Detailed itemized budgets are to be made available on the internet for review by the public at least 20 days prior to their approval. Bills or budgets not satisfying the aforementioned requirements are to be deemed invalid and unenforceable."
- Adhere to the U.S. Constitution
- Excerpt: "The separation of powers of the executive, legislative and judiciary branches should be observed. Currently the authority of the legislative branch is disregarded by the appointment of czars who make decisions for entire industries without regard to its legality. Reject cap and trade. Uphold the second amendment."
