Campaign themes

Brown's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Protect Innocent Human Life

  • Excerpt: "Wanda will fight to protect the unborn by passing legislation that reduces the number of abortions performed in Missouri, increasing access to adoptive services and education about life-saving alternatives. Defending the sanctity of human life is a top priority for Wanda."

Defend our 2nd Amendment Rights

  • Excerpt: "Wanda believes the 2nd Amendment is the FIRST amendment. She has spent the last decade fighting the anti-gun lobby to help pass concealed carry access in Missouri, Castle Doctrine and protecting shooting sports."

Attract Jobs to our State

  • Excerpt: "Government doesn't create good jobs - but Wanda believes government can get out of the way and allow small business owners to practice their trade and provide secure jobs to our communities."

Lower Taxes and Streamline Government

  • Excerpt: "Especially in times like these, Missouri families can't afford to pay higher taxes. Government needs to become smaller and more efficient. Wanda will keep a watchful eye on government spending and keep big city liberals from reaching into our pocketbooks."

Put our Children's Education First

  • Excerpt: "Wanda wants to make sure our next generation is well-equipped to keep our country and our state moving in the right direction. Providing children with a first-class education is the first step in doing that."
