Campaign themes

On his campaign website, Prewett lists five issues he is concerned about.[3] They are:

  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "I feel that by reducing the tax burdens on our citizens and businesses, it would make it easier on business owners. We need to make Georgia a Pro-Business state."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "I will support a bill similar to that of Arizona's, and will work to make Georgia the toughest state in the Nation on illegal immigration."
  • Constitutionally Limited Government
Excerpt: "The founders understood that the federal government was to execute the specific tasks as enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. Our founders understood that we promote the general welfare by limiting the role and function of the federal government in our daily lives, not promote the general welfare by being a welfare state."
  • Gun Control
Excerpt: "I am an avid outdoorsman and have a strong belief in the right to bear arms. Law abiding citizens do not need gun control, and infringing on our 2nd Amendment rights is unconstitutional!"
  • Term Limits
Excerpt: "Long term incumbency leads to Career Politicians that become complacent and care more about what is best for their careers instead of their country."
