Campaign themes


LaMotte's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Entitlement Reform

  • Excerpt: "We are crushing hard-working Hoosiers by taxing them at every opportunity. Welfare needs more careful oversight. This, combined with the creation of legislation, which would limit capable Hoosiers from taking advantage of our welfare system, is long overdue."

Tougher Criminal Sentencing

  • Excerpt: "Due to loopholes, we are sending child offenders back to the streets to re-offend. Crimes against our most vulnerable must be dealt with in the most serious fashion."

Protection of the Traditional Family Unit

  • Excerpt: "Marriage should be defined as a union between one man and one woman, and we must preserve this God-ordained institution. One in two marriages ends in divorce, and our children suffer the most. Counseling should be mandated prior to both marriage and divorce."

Sanctity of Life

  • Excerpt: "There is no greater crime against humanity than the merciless killing of the unborn. We, as a society, need to step in and protect the most innocent and defenseless among us and curb the tide of abortion."

Job Creation Incentives

  • Excerpt: "Let's empower, not encumber the job creators in our state, regardless of their size. Let's improve upon progress made in our state by removing unnecessary bureaucratic complexities and creating appropriate tax incentives for those creating jobs in Indiana."
