Campaign themes

Mitchell's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Encourage Family Values

  • Excerpt: "Janet is Pro-Family and Pro-Life, from conception to natural death."

Protect Individual Healthcare Freedom

  • Excerpt: "We should be looking towards tort reform and insurance reform, not forcing our citizens to buy a product and facilitate practices that are ethically reprehensible to them."

Create Jobs, Reduce Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Kansas has great talent that is "courted and exported" by no income-tax states. Let's keep our kids in Kansas by keeping our jobs in Kansas."

Prioritize Government

  • Excerpt: "Kansas needs to preserve its autonomy. DC has eroded our state sovereignty using "strings attached" earmarks and grants. Kansas cannot afford an inflated government."

Protect Second Amendment Rights
