Issues

Campaign themes

Johnston's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

Economic and Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt: "True economic growth requires that individuals and families have money to spend on what they need. This spending leads to business profits which create new jobs."

Employment

  • Excerpt: "Our economic growth depends on the availability of both private and public sector jobs. These opportunities are essential for Kansans who have been out of work and also for our young adults who are seeking employment after graduation."
