Issues

Campaign themes

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

Smaller Government

  • Excerpt:"I feel taxed to death, and its time we give our taxpayers - that's me and you - a break!"

Right to Life

  • Excerpt:"We've killed a whole generation of babies and this must stop. We need to get back to those good old Judeo Christian values of God, family and country. How can it be okay to not notify a parent that a young girl is having an abortion, but we can't give her a tylenol for the pain in school?"

Gun Control

  • Excerpt:"I feel just like Charlton Heston - the only way you'll get my guns is from my cold dead hands."
