Campaign themes

King submitted the following statement to Ballotpedia:[3]

I would enforce the law whether enacted by the Legislature or by the voters. I would reform the implementation of Prop. 109, which allows recidivist parolees to return to the street sooner, and incarcerates them in county jail instead of state prison. What will be unique about my campaign and my beliefs about the office is that I will focus on the burdens our state government imposes on ordinary Californians and business owners.[7]
