Campaign themes


In an article with the Daily Herald, Winger highlights the following issues:[2]

Income tax

  • Excerpt: "The current legislature will have to make the decision on the state income tax, but I do not support any continuation of that tax increase. I plan to work with legislatures and thoroughly review budgets on all levels to make the determination on how to cut back on the expenditures that have gone unchecked for far too long."

Public pensions

  • Excerpt: "The current legislature has voted on the changes to the overhaul, and we will await the contesting of the constitutionality of the law. It is a shame that years of mismanagement by the Democratically led legislature resulted in these pensions not being properly funded. When elected, I will work with the legislatures, and push for and support bills that are fair to taxpayers, fair to the workers affected by the system, and constitutional."


  • Excerpt: "I would support new casinos and slot machines at horse racing tracks. Before considering internet gambling legislation I would need to see strict measures in place that prevent minors from engaging in gambling and restrictions to internet companies that monitor fraudulent activity and that limit the amount individuals would be able to bet. I would need to separate evaluate internet gaming from the casinos and slot machines and would not be to consolidate in to one single vote."
