Caldwell's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "I believe the #1 priority for our tax dollars should be to provide for our core services - schools, roads, and public safety."
- Excerpt: "I believe ours is not a problem of not enough resources, but rather a problem of waste and inefficiency. The role of our government isn’t to be all things to all people and it is past time we stop trying to be."
- Excerpt: "I believe we must continue to strive for excellence in our schools. We need to hold our schools, our teachers, our parents, and most importantly our children accountable for their education. I believe this is best achieved by promoting local control of our schools and by allowing teachers, administrators, and parents a strong voice in the way in which we educate our children."
- Excerpt: "I believe in protecting our second amendment rights and will fight any infringement of that right by our federal government and outside interest groups."
- Excerpt: "I believe that life begins at conception and I’m 100% pro-life."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
