Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Standridge's campaign highlighted the following issues:[2]

Family Values

  • Excerpt: "Raised with strong Christian values and now with the greatest desire to provide the best possible world for his children to grow up in, Rob is convinced that we have a desperate need to bring our country back to those core principles upon which this great nation was founded."

Limited Government

  • Excerpt: "Rob does not believe in anarchy but believes we need to try to find our way back to the level of freedom our founders craved, risked their lives for, and won after much bloodshed. In our businesses and in our lives we are seeing government ever-encroaching further and further upon our freedoms and liberties."

Business

  • Excerpt: "Rob is not against big business, but his heart is with the mom and pop shop just like his own. What we need in the capitol is someone who will fight for the rights and freedoms of small business which is the backbone of our state’s economy."

Income Tax

  • Excerpt: "Rob believes we should work towards reducing the state income tax which will allow us to attract more business to Oklahoma, which in turn will help all our small businesses."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "Rob opposes Obamacare. The major problem with this bill is that it has no meaningful cost controls, and simply increases the size of a pool that is today obscenely abused."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Oklahoma

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Oklahoma scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
