Campaign themes

  • Balance the Budget: "Unless we balance the budget, we will continue adding to our national debt. As things stand, our children and grandchildren will already inherit more than the $50,000 per person in debt."
  • Jobs and the Economy: "Strengthen our economy by reducing the regulatory burden that costs American employers around $1.75 trillion annually."
  • Affordable Healthcare: "Obamacare is a bureaucratic nightmare that will slow job creation, weaken Medicare, damage the doctor/patient relationship and cost middle class taxpayers way too much."
  • Education: "In the Assembly, Dan’s innovative proposal to develop an affordable fast track college degree for science, math and engineering programs has won widespread bipartisan praise."
  • National Security and Veterans: "According to the California Department of Veterans Affairs, the Golden State is home to an estimated 1,844,803 veterans. It is imperative that we meet the needs of California veterans.

Legislative scorecard

Capitol Weekly, California's major weekly periodical covering the state legislature, publishes an annual legislative scorecard to pin down the political or ideological leanings of every member of the legislature based on how they voted on an assortment of bills in the most recent legislative session. The 2009 scores were based on votes on 19 bills, but did not include how legislators voted on the Proposition 1A (2009). On the scorecard, "100" is a perfect liberal score and "0" is a perfect conservative score.[7][8]

On the 2009 Capitol Weekly legislative scorecard, Price ranked as a 6.[9]

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 Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
