Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Carson's website highlighted the following themes:[2]

Taxes & Jobs

  • Excerpt: "The only legitimate way to raise substantial revenues to the state, are to implement policies that create a rich, fertile environment for sustained long term economic growth."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Education, be it public, private, charter school, or homeschooling, needs to be supported and funded with the ultimate goal of producing a highly educated student ready for the workforce, or post secondary education. If one is truly in favor of producing students with a superior education, the “infantry” on the “front line” of this battle are the teachers."

Social Issues

  • Excerpt: "[Indiana is] still a place where one can truly feel comfortable with who they are, and who their neighbor is. Whatever social ills trending in San Francisco, Denver, or New York City should have no bearing on how we live our lives in the Hoosier state. That’s why we live here and not there."
