Campaign themes


McBride's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Sanctity of Life

  • Excerpt: "Mark believes life is a gift of God and is determined to stand up for the rights of our most defenseless citizens, the unborn."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "Mark believes the right to use guns for sport or protection is part of our Constitution and our heritage. Mark will fight to preserve our right to protect our families and loved ones."

School Choice

  • Excerpt: "Mark believes parents know best when it comes to deciding where their children go to school, whether that be public, private or at home, and that government should not be in the business of choosing our children’s schools."


  • Excerpt: "Mark believes the United States should have strictly enforced immigration policies. The U.S. Supreme Court is currently reviewing Arizona’s immigration law and once they issue their ruling, Mark believes Oklahoma will have a clearer picture of the role the legislature can play in strengthening state laws to deal with this national crisis."

Property Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Mark believes it is simply wrong of government to automatically increases taxes on homes when we know that home ownership help families stay together. Mark supports limits on property tax increases, particularly for those who are retired and on a fixed income, so that people can plan for expenses and have a better opportunity to own a home."
