Campaign themes

  • Excerpt: "State's rights advocate"
  • Excerpt: "Personal Property Rights Advocate"
  • Excerpt: "2nd Amendment staunch supporter"
  • Excerpt: "Oppose Common Core due to 'SOCIALISTIC' background"

Clampitt has stated, "My belief is that our citizens' needs are of the utmost importance; less taxes and government intrusion into our personal lives. I am committed to meeting those needs and not only listening to, but HEARING what my district wants. I want to be YOUR voice in North Carolina's Legislature. For too long now, government has overgrown and forgotten that it is a "government OF the people, BY the people, and FOR the people." The more the government gives, the more the government can take away."[3]
