Flores did not provide answers to the Florida State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test provides voters with how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected.
On her campaign website, Flores lists five issues she is concerned about. They are:
- Excerpt: "I support comprehensive and innovative educational reform so that we can prepare our children to survive and thrive in the global marketplace."
- Excerpt: "We work too hard to continue to have our government reach into our pockets to fill a void it created. I will continue to work hard to safeguard your hard earned dollars from wasteful government spending."
- Excerpt: "We must work to ensure that programs designed to help care for our elderly, our children, and the physically disabled are protected and designed to serve the needs of all better."
- Property Insurance
- Excerpt: "Let’s allow the free market to work and continue to promote and cultivate competition in the insurance market. At the same time we need to be a watchdog to make certain that private insurers are charging sound and fair rates, while at the same time following the laws recently passed by the legislature."
- Rights of the Unborn
- Excerpt: "The sanctity of life must be preserved and it is our responsibility to ensure that the rights of the unborn are taken into account."
Flores's sponsored legislation in the House included:
- HB 465 - "Umbilical Cord Blood Banking: Requires DOH to prepare & distribute publication regarding process, options, medical uses, risks, & benefits of umbilical cord blood collection."
