Tinderholt's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Budget and the Economy.
- Excerpt: "Thanks to a low-tax environment and hardworking citizens, Texas is number one in the nation for job creation. Our economic climate means over a thousand people come to this state each and every day looking for the jobs and opportunity our state provides. Despite our prosperity, our Legislature has decided to spend much like Sacramento or Detroit, using accounting gimmicks, ignoring priorities, and exploding the budget by over 26% in the 83rd Representative, I will demand truth in budgeting, transparency, and fight for the balanced budget our Texas Constitution demands."
- Excerpt: "In the Legislature, I want to seize the opportunity Texas has to lead the way in preparing young people for their future, be it higher education or a rewarding career. To do that, we must continue to fight the “one size fits all” approach of the past, and enable students and parents to find a school that can challenge them to succeed."
Securing Our Border.
- Excerpt: "This issue is not just a question of illegal immigration, but one of national security, and protecting the dignity of human life. Every day innocent men, women, and children are caught up in people smuggling, as well as sex and drug trafficking operations across our border with Mexico. The Federal Government purposely turns a blind eye to this unacceptable situation. As your State Representative, it will be my Constitutional duty to protect all Texans, by arming our state agencies and border patrol with the technology and manpower required to protect innocent lives."
Sanctity of Life.
- Excerpt: "As a God-fearing conservative, there is no duty more important than protecting innocent life. I was proud to support the pro-life measures our Legislature took this Session. District 94 needs a pro-life Representative ready to lead on this issue, unapologetic and ready to fight the forces we saw make a mockery of democracy last summer. I want to take the respect for human life that you and I share to Austin, and ensure that tax payer funded and late-term abortions remain in the past in Texas."
Second Amendment Rights.
- Excerpt: "Our State Representative should fight alongside fellow conservatives in resisting Federal meddling with our Constitution. Additionally as an elected official, I will never vote to grant politicians special privileges and protections that we are unwilling to afford to each and every Texas citizen."
