Gruenhagen's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Right to Life
- Excerpt:"The most basic and fundamental right which comes from God is the right to life. I am pro life from conception to natural death. When a nation aborts 50 million of its own children it is not only morally reprehensible, but also leads to severe economic consequences."
Jobs & Taxes
- Excerpt:"High taxes and government regulations make it difficult for MN businesses to prosper, create jobs and compete globally."
- Excerpt:"I oppose Obama-care, which increases premiums and will lead to rationed healthcare. It must be repealed and replaced with true healthcare reform."
- Excerpt:"We need to protect the environment, however I would oppose any form of a Cap and Trade scheme, which if implemented will only drive up energy costs for our families and businesses and will do nothing to protect the environment."
- Excerpt:"We must build new nuclear power plants and utilize clean coal technology, along with expanded use of natural gas. Our country has the resources to become energy independent."
