Campaign themes

2014

Saine's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs & The Economy

  • Excerpt: "It is Jason’s belief that government’s role in a free enterprise system should be limited and should foster an environment where individual initiative and innovation are rewarded, not discouraged. Excessive regulation and taxation are contradictive to a free society."

Life

  • Excerpt: "Jason is unequivocally Pro-Life and will fight for legislation which protects life from conception until natural death."

Taxes & Spending

  • Excerpt: "Jason believes that we must develop a modern tax code that will better conform to our changing economy & promote income growth, business investment & make our economy more diverse. We can do this by making the tax code simpler, more transparent and easier to understand and administer."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Jason believes in school choice and that competition is the best way to improve education performance. To that point, fair comparisons must be made and when we find innovations in one area, we must quickly implement those advances throughout our public schools."

Second Amendment Rights

  • Excerpt: "Jason supports the ownership, sale, purchase and “lawful carry” of firearms by law-abiding citizens and elimination of statewide “no carry” zones."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in North Carolina

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of North Carolina scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
