Campaign themes


Secor's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "The Congress has done less than nothing for the unemployed, the underemployed, or working men and women, 43% of whom are worried about possibly losing their jobs. It's not surprising that the approval rate for Congress is at 6% (that's not a typo)."
  • Housing
Excerpt: "The economy simply CANNOT recover until we address the housing crisis. Even with the 30-year rate at 4% or less, those of us whose mortgages are underwater cannot refinance. They can't qualify for a loan."
  • Economy
Excerpt: "Our "Do Nothing" Congress brought us to the brink of economic disaster b y its refusal to compromise on the debt ceiling. Our Congressman was the worst! After Republicans and Democrats finally did reach a compromise at the last second, Mr. Hunter and the extremists in Congress still voted, "No!""
  • Social Security
Excerpt: "Social Security can and must be preserved - not only for today's seniors, but also their children and grandchildren."
  • Medicare
Excerpt: "Like Social Security, Medicare can and must be preserved. Mr. Hunter, with his vote for the Ryan Budget, voted to killMedicare. He wants it replaced by a voucher program, in which you would receive $6-8,000 to buy your own health insurance on the open market."
