Edmunds' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "The big government Obamacare approach is not something the majority of Montanans want. It creates layers of new taxes, regulations, and bureaucracies that will ultimately make our problems worse, not better and cost our State millions of dollars. Montana needs to be able to opt out of this terrible program."
- Excerpt: "With our abundant Natural Resources our state should have an abundance of good paying Jobs. Yet hard working families all across Montana are hurting. Our young people shouldn’t have to leave the state in order to support their families. If we truly want to create good jobs in Montana we need to have less, not more Government and allow our free enterprise system to work."
- Excerpt: "Montana is the “Treasure State” with huge deposits of natural resourses that need to be and should be developed. Coal, gas, oil, wind, and timber are abundant. We can and should mine, drill and cut in an environmentally friendly manner. Let’s remove the bureaucratic restrictions on utilizing our natural resources."
- Excerpt: "While our state is doing well when compared to other states, it is not doing so well when compared to other countries. In an increasingly global economy that is where we need to base our comparisons. We need to move from a bureaucrat-dominated status quo to an innovative system that emphasizes accountability, transparency, and parental choice. Parents should be able to choose the right school for their child."
- Excerpt: "The Tenth Amendment is clear. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” The federal government has over stepped its Constitutional authority and it is the States that need to keep them in check. Utah, Arizona, and other states are challenging the Federal assumption of authority not given them and Montana needs to actively step forward and back those efforts."
Edmunds introduced HB 526, an act entitled "An Act Authorizing an Interstate Healthcare Compact And Directing the Governor to Join the Compact" in the Montana House of Representatives on February 12, 2011.

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
