Campaign themes

Phillips' campaign website emphasized the following campaign themes:[2]

Job Creation
Excerpt: "By providing an environment of low taxation and reduced regulation where businesses can grow and entrepreneurship can flourish is the best way to create jobs in Iowa."

Agriculture
Excerpt: "The state of Iowa is based on Agriculture and is a fundamental heritage of Iowans. We must continue to support agriculture and make sure that our farm economy is strong. When agriculture prospers in Iowa, everyone in Iowa benefits."

Gun Rights
Excerpt: "I’m a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and will not vote or support any state law to supersede it."

Spending
Excerpt: "We need to keep our budget balanced in Iowa. As your State Senator, I will not support any budget that spends more money than the state collects."

Education
Excerpt: "I believe that parents should have the choice of how and where to educate their children. I am also opposed to Common Core–no question that educational standards are needed, but they need to be set by local school boards and parents, not a federally mandated, one-size-fits-all document."
