Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Kimmick listed the following issues on his campaign website:[3]

  • Defense: It is long over due to bring our troops back home where they belong. We need to be able to defend the United States not the whole world.
  • Foreign Policy: Neturality. It seems as if we are being led into another war, this time in the Urkraine. This country has little to do with our national self interest. I will oppose any efforts to involve us in this conflict. The war in Iraq is back. We have declared war on Syria. I oppose both of these new wars.
  • Economy: From recent research there is a business cycle. It has an 8.6 year time frame. The variable is the volitility of the cycle. Our leaders assume they can change this cycle by passing laws. These only cause more problems. It is like trying to turn winter into summer. Better to understand there is a cycle. Like the seasons, learn to plan and live with them. Thanks to Armstrong Economics for all their work.

The 3rd Congressional District of Nevada held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Joe Heck (R) defeated Erin Bilbray (D), Randy Kimmick (L), David Goossen (I) and Steven St John (I) in the general election. Bilbray defeated Zachary Campbell in the Democratic primary on June 10, 2014, while the other candidates ran unopposed or did not run in the primary.

Nevada's 3rd was considered a battleground district in 2014. Heck had only been in office since 2011, and although he won re-election in 2012 with a 7.5 percent margin of victory, the district voted Democratic in the 2012 presidential election. President Barack Obama won the district by just 0.8 percent.
