Campaign themes


Coble's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Families are divided because of unemployment. Businesses are closing because people don’t have money to spend because of unemployment."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "I believe that we need a responsible pathway to immigration reform. Our country is a nation of immigrants and we will continue to NEED additional immigrants in the years ahead."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Universal, compulsory education did much during the 20th Century to improve the lives of our people and to propel the United States to a position of world leadership. But as the old commercial asks, “What have you done for me lately?”"
  • Economy
Excerpt: "We find ourselves in the worst economic era of our lifetime. Not since the Great Depression have so many people lost their homes, their businesses, or their jobs."
