Campaign themes


Walker's website emphasized the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Parents are best equipped to choose educational options for their own families most successfully. I support all educators providing quality education options, and work to protect the liberty of parents to choose learning venues which aspire to the highest standards within local communities. The criteria for educational excellence is in local hand; local decision makers best know the issues framing the debate."

Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "To stimulate economic growth, businesses need incentives to invest capital in our State. High taxes, an untrained workforce, and bureaucratic corruption deter business. I know to promote economic stimulus by curtailing government spending is counter intuitive to some, but business leaders look at spending levels per capita when selecting sites."


  • Excerpt: "In order for businesses to invest in hiring, and rehiring, the business community needs some degree of assurance they can recognize marginal gains with every employee. I pushed to defer the tax increases on state unemployment taxes, so that companies are not burdened with new increases for each new hire. We should finish this effort in early 2010."

Free Expression of One's Faith

  • Excerpt: "I will defend every Hoosiers’ right to choose how we express our personal faith in God. I will defend the Constitution of our State. I will also preserve your right to not worship if that violates your conscience or consent."

Second Amendment Rights

  • Excerpt: "Gun ownership is a constitutionally protected right, not a privilege. I pledge to defend this right, and I will defend against federal efforts to usurp authority from the states by imposing unnecessary handgun regulations."

State Sovereignty

  • Excerpt: "I believe it is my responsibility as a state legislator to take a lead role in defending the balance of power which is designed into our government. Any right we fail to defend will dissipate over time."

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Indiana scorecards, email suggestions to
