Campaign themes


Nisly's website highlighted the following campaign themes:


Life begins at conception and lasts until one’s natural death. Life is one of the unalienable rights mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Taking the innocent life of another denies this fundamental right.

Gun Owners Rights

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Free people retain the right to arm themselves. The Founders knew an oppressive government must be kept in check through separation of powers, and also through the power of the people.

Indiana State Sovereignty

The United States of America is a group of states which signed and agreed upon a contract, namely the U.S. Constitution. The states preceded the federal government and formed the federal government, and therefore maintain supremacy over the federal government in all matters which are not expressly given to the federal government in the U.S. Constitution. Indiana has the right and duty to keep the federal government inside its Constitutional boundaries.

Traditional Marriage

Marriage is a tradition and also an institution which civilizations have recognized over millennia. The definition of marriage is the union between one man and one woman, and Hoosiers should have the right to establish this definition in the Indiana Constitution.

Local Control of Education

Parents bear the ultimate responsibility to see their children are educated. Education has several purposes, such as imparting skills needed to become good citizens. For this reason, elementary and secondary education requires much more than simply enabling a job offer or admission to college. Local control of education standards and curricula allows for local values and customs which help create the mosaic that is America.[1][2]

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Indiana scorecards, email suggestions to
