McDaniel's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"I realize that the only way to create jobs is to provide an environment where you can attract and retain businesses."
- Excerpt:"Consequently, we must keep taxes low while maintaining a high level of services. To accomplish this, I will focus on reducing our corporate and personal tax rates."
- Excerpt:" I will demand fiscal restraint from the State Senate and refuse to vote for new spending without ensuring that it is completely funded and that other areas of spending are cut."
Donor Region Status
- Excerpt:"I will fight to ensure that we decrease the amount of our hard earned money that is being siphoned off by other regions so that we can more completely fund our infrastructure and our education system."
- Excerpt:"In order to be successful in a global economy we must have a well trained and educated workforce. This extends from our primary schools through the universities and the technical colleges. The best way to do this is to permit local control of schools and to allow competition to be introduced into the education system whereby the best performing schools are permitted to succeed and the lower performing schools are forced to change or close their doors."
