|Last election||November 4, 2014|
Horn is the son of German immigrants. He is a resident of Frankenmuth, Michigan, where he owned and operated Horn's Dead Creek Saloon.
Prior to serving in the state house, Horn was a Saginaw County commissioner.
Horn's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Jobs and Economic Growth
- Excerpt: "Government doesn’t create jobs, people create jobs. The government needs to step aside and let industry and small businesses flourish. With a modest understandable tax rate we can promote entrepreneurship instead of stifling it. In the right environment, our independent businesses will create jobs and put Michigan’s economy back on track."
- Excerpt: "Michigan families are making tough decisions around the dinner table about what they can and cannot afford. They’re feeling the economic squeeze and tightening their budgets — Michigan government needs to do the same. We cannot continue to spend money we don’t have."
- Excerpt: "In addition to a modest tax rate, Michigan needs to do everything it can to cut red tape for growing businesses and conscientious homeowners. Every additional regulation we place on responsible citizens leads to additional costs and more businesses moving jobs out of our state."
Quality of Life
- Excerpt: "Michigan is already a great place to call home, not only because of our state’s natural beauty but because of its citizens. Our taxpayers deserve more than they’re currently getting for their money. My spending priorities are focused around enhancing the lives of our residents and attracting new families to our state."
- Excerpt: "I will continue to work to decrease our dependence on outside sources for our energy needs and encourage advancements in new energy technologies. Our citizens have the skills and resources to continue to be at the front of this exciting new industry."
