- Excerpt: "The future success of Oregon farmers is endangered, however, because government policies stifle agricultural production with needless, uninformed, and overly burdensome regulations."
- Excerpt: "I will vote to repeal the President’s plan for healthcare (ObamaCare)."
- Excerpt: "One such reform would be securing the border, and a proper guest worker program that creates benefits for local communities while reducing the incentives for immigrants to cross the border illegally."
- Excerpt: "I will continually voice opposition to government funding for abortion procedures and fight to protect life at every stage."
- Second Amendment
- Excerpt: "Congress must halt the unconstitutional practice of restricting a person’s ability to purchase, transport, store, or possess arms on public lands or on that individual’s private property under the disguise of regulating interstate commerce or so-called concern for public health and safety."
- Social Security and Medicare
- Excerpt: "We must keep our promises to seniors but we also must recognize that Social Security and Medicare are not sustainable as currently laid out."
- State Sovereignty
- Excerpt: "I will oppose legislative acts that unconstitutionally enlarge government authority and threaten our individual freedom."
