Rizer's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Military & Non-Profit Leader
- Excerpt: "I will stand by my principles, but will be willing to find common ground when possible to get results that best serve the interests of all. I will not shy away from voicing my opinion, but will do my level best to treat respectfully those with whom I disagree."
Champion for Individual Freedom
- Excerpt: "I believe in the right to life, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, and Iowa’s right under the 10th Amendment to resist our ever intrusive federal government."
- Excerpt: "I believe in economic freedom. In order to unleash the full potential of every individual, family, or farm/small business, I support low taxes on income, property, and corporate earnings to reward hard work, stimulate the economy, lower unemployment, and increase living standards."
Government is a Steward
- Excerpt: "I believe government should do only those things that the people can’t do better themselves. As good stewards of the people’s money, government should live within its means."
Education Gateway to the American Dream
- Excerpt: "I believe that education and training are the gateways to the American dream and the key to Iowa’s future. We must take steps to ensure that our children and citizens are the most educated, literate, and well-trained in the nation."

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