Paul's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Pro-Life and Sanctity of Marriage
- Excerpt: "I am a Pro-Life conservative who will defend the rights of the unborn. I believe in the sanctity of traditional marriage (as defined by one man and one woman)."
- Excerpt: "We must ensure our law enforcement have the tools they need to do the job safely. We must stop the state benefits to those who have broken the law. We are a nation governed by laws and it is time to step-up and enforce the law regarding illegal immigration. "
Property Tax Relief
- Excerpt: "We need these taxes to be low, fair and transparent. We need to hold these levels of government accountable for spending YOUR money. We also need a reduction in the appraisal cap to provide relief for families in District 129."
- Excerpt: "Education is critical to raising a generation that is better off than our own. We need to keep quality teachers and stop rewarding schools that fail. We need curriculum that correctly teaches our history and not allow liberal anti-American curriculum to be forced upon our children. Keeping local control of our schools is one of the most important thing we can do and this includes the freedom of school choice."

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
