|• Human Services|
|• Urban Affairs|
Sanford's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"Scott believes that we must hold the line and reduce the size and intrusive reach of government instead. Families, businesses and non-profits all across Texas live and operate on a budget and our state government must do the same."
- Excerpt:"In order to keep our families secure at home, Scott will work to safeguard our borders to keep terrorists and drug traffickers out of Texas. The federal government has failed at one of its primary duties–securing the border."
- Excerpt:"At the heart of our democratic process, fair elections secure our freedoms. Scott strongly supports the voter ID law. He will work to protect this important legislation to ensure that only those with valid state identification can cast their ballot."
- Excerpt:"I am 100% pro-life and believe every baby is a miracle from the moment of conception. I do not support any reason to end the life of an unborn baby."
FIGHT BIG GOVERNMENT
- Excerpt:"The role of government should be limited to the powers expressly given in the United States Constitution. As a state’s rights advocate, Scott will remind the federal government it obtained its power from the individual states, and not the other way around."
