Campaign themes


Laymon's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

business & Jobs

  • Excerpt: "It is imperative that we work to create an atmosphere in Arkansas that is friendly to entrepreneurs who want to open small businesses and to corporations looking for a place to expand or relocate. Doing this begins by getting unnecessary government regulations OUT OF THE WAY!"

taxes & Government

  • Excerpt: "Government is too big and taxes are too high! Donald Laymon will work to reign in government growth and to systematically lower taxes across the board for Arkansans."

bottom Up Education

  • Excerpt: "Education should begin in the home - not Washington, D.C. Mr. Laymon is especially concerned because his children are currently in the 6th & 7th grades in the public school system. His experience is that the Common Core system holds back the advanced students and leaves behind those that need help. This is unacceptable for our children."


  • Excerpt: "Donald Laymon believes life begins at conception and that abortion violates the rights of children in the womb. He will stand up in favor of the rights of these children at every opportunity."

second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "The federal government under the current administration is over-reaching to regulate our Constitutionally protected right to bear arms by any means available. Donald Laymon will stand up to protect our rights."
