Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Daniel's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Create Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Since being elected to the NC Senate in 2010, creating jobs has been my top priority. I know what it takes to create jobs and I will CONTINUE to work tirelessly to ensure that good jobs are available to every North Carolinian."

Cut Wasteful Spending

  • Excerpt: "I have worked hard to cut wasteful spending, and balanced a state budget that started with a projected $2.5 BILLION dollar deficit. I will continue to fight for smaller government so we can reduce the tax burden on our families and businesses."

Lower Taxes

  • Excerpt: "North Carolina has the highest corporate and personal income tax rates in the Southeast. This is killing jobs and hurting our working families. Our tax laws are outdated and need reform. We need to lower our state corporate and personal income tax rates to help our economy grow, and I will fight every day in the NC Senate to see that this happens."

Improve Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe that our schools must be centers of learning excellence where we prepare our students not only for future employment, but to become productive, contributing citizens of our State and Nation. We cannot achieve excellence by simply spending more money on the status quo; we must reform education to develop a passion for learning in our students."

Obama Care

  • Excerpt: "To protect North Carolinians from President Obama’s overreaching federal health care law, in 2011 I worked hard to pass the Health Care Freedom Act that gave North Carolinians the right to opt out of the mandate to purchase health insurance."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in North Carolina

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of North Carolina scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
