Campaign themes


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

  • Flood Reform
Excerpt: "BW12 was another law our members of Congress did not read or understand. From Nassau Bay in the west to Bridge city in the east, this act will destroy our coastal communities in a way that no Hurricane could. Since the passage of the act I have worked tirelessly to inform and educate lawmakers on the devastating impact of BW12, and I worked on legislation that has been filed to “fix” the Act."
  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "Private sector, free market job creation is what will solve this country’s economic problems, and Texas is leading the way. Our state is the first in the nation in job creation, in spite of the Obama administration’s war against private business."
  • Energy Independence
Excerpt: "America’s unwarranted over-dependence on foreign oil impacts our economy and national security dramatically."
  • Defending the Second Amendment
Excerpt: "I am a proud member of the National Rifle Association, Life Member of the Texas State Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, and the National Association for Gun Rights. As a lifelong gun owner and sportsmen, I enjoy teaching non-gun owners and youngsters about firearms safety and the shooting sports."
  • NASA and Space Exploration
Excerpt: "Our space program was once led the world. We are in danger of moving into second or even third place. This has dramatic implication for advances in science, technology, and national security."
  • Immigration Reform and Border Security
Excerpt: "America is a nation of immigrants, men and women who left everything behind in search of opportunity, jobs, and a better future for their children. Of course, these are the same things we all desire."
