Sagers's campaign website listed the following issues:
- States’ Rights
- Excerpt: "As your State Representative I’ve cosponsored legislation opposing any congressional, judicial or executive effort that has sought to commandeer the principle that powers not delegated by the U.S. Constitution to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people."
- Excerpt: "I successfully lead the fight to assure that Tooele County received fair and sensible legislative representation in last year’s redistricting process. I was instrumental in securing for Tooele County the equivalent of two seats in the Utah House of Representatives, and worked diligently to increase the County’s proportional representation in the Utah State Senate."
- Excerpt: "In my two years in office, I’ve successfully opposed any state tax increases and will continue to do so. I’m for limited taxation, and then only for government to perform and administer those services that meet essential public needs. I recognize that the power to tax is the power to take. The best way to control government is to strictly limit the amount citizens are taxed."
- Right To Life
- Excerpt: "I co-sponsored legislation strengthening Utah’s anti-abortion laws. I believe that all human life is sacred, regardless of age or infirmity. I oppose abortion, except when the life of the mother is at risk."
- Right To Own & Bear Arms
- Excerpt: "I believe it is our constitutional right to keep and bear arms and I have and will continue to oppose any effort to limit this right."
