Boals's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]


  • Excerpt:"I pledge NOT to vote for tax increases and will fight to lower your already heavy tax burden. The more our citizens have to spend, the more our economy benefits."


  • Excerpt:"Our State Legislature currently owes our public schools over $2 billion. They continually delay payments on this debt. I will not stop fighting for this debt to be paid. We simply owe it to our children."

Gun Rights
