Issues

Campaign themes

Davis listed the following issues on his campaign website:[3]

  • Keeping and Creating Jobs: "As a county commissioner, I’ve worked hard to bring new opportunities and economic development to Guilford County. In Congress, I will continue my efforts to make North Carolina the place to do business, oppose trade policies that send jobs overseas, and support tax policies that encourage manufacturers to locate here instead of abroad."
  • Protecting Our Seniors: "I believe our seniors deserve better after a lifetime of hard work. I will fight attempts to cut or privatize Social Security and Medicare, because I know that we can’t fix our budget problems on the backs of our senior citizens."
  • Enduring Access to Education: "I believe that every child deserves access to a high quality education. Our children are the future, and we must invest early to ensure they reach their greatest potential. I will fight to ensure access to education, from early childhood to the university level."
  • Standing Up for Veterans: "After serving for two decades in the United States Marine Corps, I know firsthand the difficulties faced by service families, and the struggles too many veterans endure when they return to civilian life. I will make taking care of our veterans a top priority."
