Campaign themes


Schnittgrund's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Pro Life

  • Excerpt: "I’m a lifelong Roman Catholic who believes in the Sanctity of life. I was dumbfounded when the Supreme Court struck down Arizona’s 20 week ban on abortion. As a Catholic, I believe life begins at conception and the Supreme Court is sanctioning the murder of babies. I will protect the rights to life of the unborn and will write, sponsor and push Pro-life legislation."

Jobs Are #1

  • Excerpt: "As a business owner George understands what it takes to create private sector jobs. Right here in Lake Havasu City we have empty commercial factories and this is repeated in Kingman, Bullhead City and Parker. We need to entice more businesses to come here to LaPaz and Mohave counties."


  • Excerpt: "George thinks SB1070 was a good start but we have a lot more work to be done to secure the border. If we cannot secure the border and enforce the laws, we may become a NARCO state. As a border state, Arizonans see drug trafficking, human smuggling and various other crimes associated with crossing the border illegally."
  • Excerpt: "This is why George supports a deep water port in Guaymas Mexico. This port will create a stable work environment for the people of Mexico and sets the stage for Arizona to become the global leader for overseas shipping. A stable economy in Mexico benefits everyone in Arizona and may decrease the number of people trying to cross our border illegally."


  • Excerpt: "George is against the Common Core Standards."

Gun Rights

  • Excerpt: "I believe in the 2nd amendment and will do anything to strengthen our right to not only bear arms but also the ability to defend ourselves. As an NRA member I will work with the NRA to write, sponsor and support any legislation which strengthens your right to protect yourself and your family."
