Issues

Campaign themes

Johnson's website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Creating Jobs
Excerpt: "Arizona’s government must build relationships with businesses to harness their understanding of the private sector to make our state the best place in the world to do business. We should incentivize employers to hire more employees and encourage more investment here in Arizona."
  • Improving Education
Excerpt: "he legislature has used education as a tool for balancing the budget. Instead, we need to focus on education as a tool for creating economic opportunity and a better quality of life in Arizona."
  • Controlling Government Spending
Excerpt: "We must control spending and manage our spiraling budget deficit. Government has grown too big, and we must learn to live within our means like every Arizonan."
  • Securing The Border
Excerpt: "We must strengthen our borders and continue to be tough on illegal immigration."
  • Protecting Our 2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "I strongly support our Second Amendment and believe that Arizonans have the right to keep and bear arms as a basic constitutional liberty."
  • Government That Works For People
Excerpt: "We need to elect people that look at issues from a nonpartisan view to make decisions that are best for Arizonans and not best for political parties. If elected to the Senate, I will work my first two years to change our legislative election process to a nonpartisan system."
