Campaign themes


Cheney's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "The state’s current unemployment rate is unacceptable. I have spoken with a troubling number of friends and neighbors who have either had their hours cut or have lost their jobs altogether."
  • Balancing the Budget
Excerpt: "For far too long politicians in Springfield have been serving the needs of special interests and leaving us with the bill. Even after passing a massive tax hike, the State of Illinois is still faced with a structural deficit as well as billions of dollars of unpaid bills"
