Sprinkle's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "We need to find new revenue sources to help bolster our education system. Teacher pay needs to stay competitive and resources for our children need to be equivalent to the best school systems nationwide. With better educated students, our state will attract more businesses willing to relocate here and we will not lose our best and brightest to other regions of the country."
- Excerpt: "We must work on providing for a more stable and strong economy. With a strong economy and high quality education system, big business will want to start up, expand or relocate here. Nevada is a wonderful place for people to work and raise their families. The stumbling blocks our economy has experienced in the past do not and will not prevent growth and prosperity in the future."
- Excerpt: "With Nevada having one of the highest jobless rates in the nation, we must work diligently to reverse this trend and put people back to work. Creating new jobs and protecting the ones we have will be one of my highest priorities."
Working Men and Women
- Excerpt: "Along with creating new jobs, we must protect the benefits of the hard working men and women of Nevada. Families should not have to sit around the dinner table talking about how their job or its’ benefits might be eliminated. Working men and women, and their children, have suffered enough and I will work tiredlessly to maintain and enhance their lives and livelihoods."

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.
