Issues

Campaign themes

In a submitted biography, Hughes describes his political philosophy:[1]

Excerpt:"I am concerned with the budget deficit, with Nevada’s education, and with increasing taxes. I don’t want my grandchildren and great grandchildren hopelessly in debt because my generation let the government spend recklessly. I don’t want to leave them uneducated because my generation didn’t improve our educational system and I certainly don’t want to see our people leave or businesses leave due to high taxes.I also want to reduce taxes on ordinary citizens in order to stimulate the economy, reduce the size of government and balance the budget in order to eliminate wasteful and foolish spending, and uphold the Constitution to protect our property and liberty."

He adds, "Using the talents and skills I learned during my successful 24 years in the Air Force, I will work hard as your state senator. I am a problem solver, a visionary, a long range planner and goal setter, and a budgetary realist. My goal is to keep you aware of what is happening in our district and in Nevada. I want to listen to you, my constituents, and discuss problems and solutions for the problems we face in Nevada."
