Campaign themes


Bouchard's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Proper Role of Government
Excerpt: "I believe that both the Wyoming and U.S. Constitutions clearly define the very concept of limited government. I also believe that the government’s primary role is to protect our personal freedoms so that individuals can reach their highest potential. ...More spending just means more government, more government means less freedom."
  • Jobs and Economy
Excerpt: "Nowadays it seems politicians think it’s the government’s job to pick the winners and losers. But history tells us a different story — it’s ordinary individuals that raise their own capital and build businesses by the sweat of their brow that have made America great. In all decision-making we must adhere to these same free market principles."
  • Gas Tax
Excerpt: "If elected as your state senator, I’ll never vote for a tax increase. I’ll introduce and aggressively push legislation to lower the current tax burden on Wyoming’s hardworking families and businesses."
  • Stop Obama-Care
Excerpt: "If you elect me as your State Senator, I will fight diligently against the bureaucratic takeover of the healthcare system."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Future generations could be severely impacted by the curriculum being dictated by Washington DC bureaucrats. Control of our classrooms belongs here in Wyoming and not in some office 1600 miles away. ...I do not support — as some liberal legislators have — changing the office of Wyoming superintendent of public instruction to being an appointed position."
  • Family Values
Excerpt: "Raising families has become even more difficult due to economic conditions. In addition to defending traditional family values we need to be tough on criminals and reduce tax burdens on families. I will stand firm in defense of the family and I will diligently protect the sanctity of life."
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "If elected as your state senator I will continue to defend the Second Amendment and your God-given right to self defense."
