Domina positioned himself as a moderate opposed to right-left ideologies: "We cannot bicker our way out of our troubles. Let’s be united in a new coalition of Nebraskans. Not left. Not right. Not reaching across the aisle, but tearing the aisle out."[1]

He was also opposed to corporate interests, saying, ”we must break them up, not let them break us down... we must take back our markets and restore real competition, not pay unfair taxes while Big Money escapes through thousands of tax loopholes in the nation’s revenue bucket."[4]
