Campaign themes

2010

Cage's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Jobs & the Economy
Excerpt: "We must build our economic future upon Arizona's natural strengths...of which there are many. Arizona is the natural choice for solar research and development. It is a worthy goal for us to want to become the 'Solar Capitol of the World.'"
  • Education
Excerpt: "I support the approach that funding for our public schools and universities is an INVESTMENT...not simply an expense."
  • Budget
Excerpt: "Our first step must be to review and reform our entire tax code. We have an estimated $10 BILLION in tax credits and loopholes. We must start with a review of each and every one."
