Issues

Campaign themes

2014

McGinnis's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Life begins at conception and I will always support pro-life legislation.
  • Marriage is between a man and a woman and I will oppose legislation that seeks to legalize same-sex marriage.
  • The government exists to serve and protect the interests of the individual, without compromising the rights of life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness
  • Our Military Veterans must be honored and supported for their physical and mental health and I will lobby for better benefits for our nation's heroes.
  • Farmers are provided with the support to provide nutritious and wholesome foods to our citizens and schools and I will stand behind our local farms.
  • Citizens have the right to bear arms and enhance security in their homes and their communities and I will fight for your constitutional rights.
  • Energy policies must incorporate all sources of domestic energy and make certain that federal and state environmental regulations do not adversely affect West Virginia.
  • Government is too big and businesses are taxed too much. I plan to propose legislation that enhances small businesses.
