Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Hasting's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

I believe in religious freedom, lower taxes, right to own guns, I do not support abortion, and I do not support a welfare state which leads to socialism. I am very conservative, but I believe it is more important for a representative to do what is best for his constituents, county, district, state, and country. Too much politics and pandering involved in government and that is a big problem. The result is a legislature that gets marred down in political issues and nobody is solving our problems.[2]
