Springer's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
JOBS AND THE ECONOMY
- Excerpt: "We have too much government in our lives, and I will work to remove the over bearing regulations that stifle growth and prevents companies from growing and hiring. I will fight to see that Texas businesses have the freedom to grow and prosper."
- Excerpt: "I will work to stop all handouts and benefits to illegal immigrants, secure the borders, and end in-state tuition to non-citizens. Texans hard earned dollars that are paid to the state must be used to take care of its citizens."
- Excerpt: "Currently, the amount spent on administration nearly equals the amount spent in the classroom. I will work to see that the bulk of money spent is where it should be, in the classroom."
REDUCING PROPERTY TAXES
- Excerpt: "We need to reduce or eliminate property taxes and look for alternative forms of revenue or taxation like the consumption tax to fund government."
