Bridges' answers to the Alabama State Legislative Election 2006 National Political Awareness Test are available. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked his top priorities he stated:
"Top priority is to expose how the labor union is controlling the teachers & schools by misleading them in graduation information & skewed political Philosophy. This endeavor would not require additional funding - only the willingness to expose Paul and Joe from the AEA. I believe job training for new & existing industry is important & we should re-direct some monies from the tax breaks we offer to fund them."
