Jerry Hayden was a 2012 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 46th Congressional District of California. He lost in the general election.
Hayden's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Restoring Financial Health
- Excerpt: "Loretta Sanchez and her colleagues refuse to stop government overspending. As our economy continues to sputter, Sanchez and her colleagues in Congress have increased federal spending by 31%. She fails to understand that we cannot borrow and spend our way out of a $15 trillion debt that equals nearly $49,000 for every single American."
- Excerpt: "To fix this economy, we must again set the free market free. That’s why I’ll fight to immediately suspend job killing mandates, fees, and taxes. That includes rolling these back to the Reagan era, which resulted in the greatest economic expansion in America’s history."
- Promoting Excellence for the Future
- Excerpt: "I support a return of local control to local schools. On the federal level, that means getting government strings and mandates out of our public schools. Local school boards, principals and teachers must have freedom, and responsibility, for how they educate our children. The Sacramento, and increasingly Washington D.C., mentality that they know better has damaged local schools more than helped."
