Campaign themes


Molina listed the following issues in his biographical submission to Ballotpedia.[3]

  • Free economy
  • Less government regulation
  • Lower taxes
  • Social issues: "In my opinion social issues such as gay marriage, abortion, and religious principals should not be part of a political debate, for these are civil rights brought forth under the constitution as the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
