Fleming provided answers to the Arizona State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked her legislative priorities she responded:
- Education. By investing in a quality education system, we will prepare our children to work in high paying fields and attract businesses that need an educated workforce.
- Healthcare. All Arizonans deserve access to quality, affordable medical care, and prescription drugs at a cost that does not send families into poverty and bankruptcy. Funding programs like Arizona's Healthcare Group for our small businesses is an important step in the right direction.
