Campaign themes


Riddle's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

Responsible Government

  • Excerpt: "I believe in maintaining a fiscally sound state government. Fighting tax increases and eliminating wasteful spending is a must for Missouri."

Preserving Traditional Family Values

  • Excerpt: "From conception to natural end, I am 100% pro-life and will continue to defend those values."

Defending the Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I am a strong advocate for 2nd Amendment rights guaranteed by our Constitution."

Educating Missouri Children

  • Excerpt: "As a retired school teacher and coach, education is a top priority. It is the door to Missouri’s future. Every child should have access to a world class education. College and vocational schools must be affordable."

Pro-Small Business & Agriculture

  • Excerpt: "I support limited government intervention in our small businesses and family farms. The spirit of competition in free enterprise creates economic growth and job opportunity if not stifled by government red tape."

No New Taxes Pledge

A minority of Missouri lawmakers signed the 2011 edition of the "No New Taxes Pledge." The Taxpayer Protection Pledge is offered by the non-profit lobbying organization Americans for Tax Reform with the goal of opposing all tax increases as a matter of principle. Just one out of 34 state Senate members signed the 2011 pledge. Out of 163 state House members, only 38 lawmakers signed.

Riddle signed the pledge.[4]
