Campaign themes

Phoenix's website highlights the following themes:[1]

  • "First-class education is a top goal for my campaign."
  • "I stand for a strong middle class and working families. I oppose the excesses and bailouts of large banks and corporations, and I believe that all parties must play by the same rules for our economy to be healthy."
  • " I believe that small businesses are a driving force in employment and building a strong middle class. As your representative, I will use my experience to help make Iowa a better place for small businesses to grow and thrive."
  • "Since clean air and water are necessary for a high quality of life, and our abundant wildlife generates tourism dollars for Iowa, both must be preserved and protected. "
  • "Furthermore, as an outdoorsman, I will vigorously oppose any efforts to infringe on the second amendment rights of Iowans."
