Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Jordan's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Obamacare

  • Excerpt: "With me at the State Capital you can be sure you will have a State Representative fighting against Obamacare and other government mandates, because I already have been."

Stronger families

  • Excerpt: "One of the things we need to ensure is that parents are able to be involved in their children’s lives. One of the biggest hindrance to that involvement is needless government interference. Just as I worked hard to ensure that Johny had the opportunity to be a father, I will work to ensure your right to raise your children and to take care of your own families."

Religious Liberty

  • Excerpt: "Just as I fought for the rights of those Pastors, I will fight to protect our Religious Liberty."

Supporting Small Businesses

  • Excerpt: "Furthermore, as a small business owner myself, I personally know what it’s like to work diligently to maintain a business. It is because of these experiences, I pledge to be an advocate for those who pursue their dreams of owning and operating their own business."

Pro-Life

  • Excerpt: "I pledge to protect and defend the most fundamental right of mankind, the right to life of every innocent human being from conception to natural death. It is important that we place a high value on human life. We must protect life whenever possible."

Second Amendment Rights

  • Excerpt: "It is important as Oklahomans that our State Legislature remain diligent in fighting those who seek to weaken this right. As a member of the NRA I have already provided some support to this defense, and when elected I pledge to fight diligently to maintain your Liberty to keep and bear Arms."

Scorecards

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 Oklahoma scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
