Campaign themes


Schwartz's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Pro-Life & Pro-Family

I will fight for our conservative family values. I am 100% pro-life and believe in defending the rights of the unborn child. Kentucky’s future lies in the strength of our families.

Private businesses are the primary creator of wealth and productive jobs in Kentucky. Government should not hinder the development and profitability of businesses, but rather encourage them. I will fight to develop a job friendly tax code and to give local communities the right to enact labor reforms at the county level.

Cancelled policies, higher premiums, and higher deductibles do not make health care “affordable.” It’s time to hold our leaders accountable for all the broken promises. I will fight to make sure that Kentuckians will never be forced to join this broken and mismanaged government health care system against their will.

Transparent, Accountable Government
I am not afraid to stand up for a more transparent government and to hold our government officials accountable for their actions. As your representative, I will fight to end policies designed to benefit legislators rather than the people they were elected to serve.

2nd Amendment
The right to self defense is a fundamental human right, and I would oppose any additional restrictive legislation regulating the sale, use or possession of firearms or ammunition to the detriment of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen in Kentucky.

Kentucky’s coal industry is absolutely vital to the economic health and stability of our entire Commonwealth. I will fight to protect Kentucky coal communities from the “War on Coal” being waged by President Obama and his activist EPA.[2][3]
