Daw's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Prescription Drug Abuse
- Excerpt: "As a legislator, I’m working to inform everyone about the addictive and dangerous nature of prescription drugs."
Child Pornography, Pedophilia and Molestation
- Excerpt: "I’m working to make the world a better place, and a safer place for our children. I’m proud to have sponsored bills that make it easier to track down pedophiles because when a child is missing, time is of the essence. I’m grateful to do my part to help save the lives of innocent children in Utah."
- Excerpt: "The best way to explain why government spending should be as minimal as possible it to go back to the father of our country. George Washington stated "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." I could actually just end right there and feel like the point has been made, but let me elaborate a bit."
- Excerpt: "I’ve devoted a lot of effort to the study of nuclear energy. I’ve toured facilities and I’m a big proponent of it when it’s done properly and safely: it doesn’t emit pollution and its waste can be disposed of efficiently. Since Utah is unramium-rich, I firmly believe nuclear energy could be an economic boon to Utah."
- Excerpt: "When we see the word "education" we are apt to think of the school we went to, or the one our kids are going to. From a legislative perspective it becomes all too easy to think of education as a very big and very high priority budget item. A teacher or principal might be inclined to think of their job. All of these are valid perspectives, but ultimately they miss the point. A child's education, in fact all of our education, is going on all the time."
