Campaign themes

2012

Dohrman's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Right to Life

  • Excerpt: "I believe that life should be protected from conception to natural end."

Gun Rights

  • Excerpt: "I believe in an individual’s right to bear arms."

Job Growth

  • Excerpt: "The best way to reach prosperity is for the government to provide an environment where entrepreneurs and workers can thrive. Individual motivation, innovation, and competition are the keys to Missouri’s future."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "I am opposed to out-of-control spending and placing more tax burden on Missourians. Fiscal responsibility has been my guiding principle as assessor of Pettis County and will remain so as state representative."

Role of States

  • Excerpt: "In Federalist 45, James Madison stated that the primary function of the federal government is national defense and the bulk of other government falls upon the states. Obviously, this has been lost over the years, and we need to return to the original concept of Madison."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Missouri

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 Missouri 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.
