Cragg's candidacy announcement:
On his campaign website, Cragg identified the following issues:
- Energy Policy, Gas Prices and Utility Costs: Cragg wants to reduce energy costs in Delaware. He criticizes the Markell administration for having Delaware join the Reional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, arguing the initiative uses tax revenue to support technologies that end up increasing utility costs. He advocates for reducing both taxes and the number of regulations.
- The Economy: Cragg wants to increase the size of Delaware's private sector and make Delaware a place where entrepreneurs are comfortable investing their money.
