Issues

Campaign themes

2014

St John listed the following issues on his campaign website.[4]

I believe that it is a federal, state, county and city...it is a combined effort to create jobs.1.) We reduce taxes, reduce regulations and get government out of businesses combined with incentatves for those businesses that hire the unemployed as new employees. 2.) We expanded training classes other than leisure and hospitality and construction. 3.) We expand foreign markets for small businesses. 4.) Create, update, expand national jobs databases of jobs that are available by county or city. 5.) Subdize "mini" jobs 15 to 20 hours a week for seniors and students and a reward program for hiring long term employess as they do in Germany as a model. 6.) Diversify, significant incentatives for those businesses to move back from overseas and nationally to move to District 3 in Nevada. 7.) A new program-Co-Oping small businesses to form small groups to share the cost of doing business with understanding that they hire both the unemployed and new employees. 8.) Increasing funding for infrastructure. 9.) Increase tourism by more aggressive marketing throughout the U.S. 10.) Expand alternative energy focusing on roof top solar panels in district 3.

My goal is simple. Create Jobs is my number one priority. [5]

The 3rd Congressional District of Nevada held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Joe Heck (R) defeated Erin Bilbray (D), Randy Kimmick (L), David Goossen (I) and Steven St John (I) in the general election. Bilbray defeated Zachary Campbell in the Democratic primary on June 10, 2014, while the other candidates ran unopposed or did not run in the primary.

Nevada's 3rd was considered a battleground district in 2014. Heck had only been in office since 2011, and although he won re-election in 2012 with a 7.5 percent margin of victory, the district voted Democratic in the 2012 presidential election. President Barack Obama won the district by just 0.8 percent.
