Campaign themes


Clemens' campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Comprehensive Immigration Reform: "Immigration reform is a family and economy issue. I stand with the eight Utah university presidents that last year wrote a letter to our Congressional delegation calling for a comprehensive, bipartisan solution."
  • Jobs and the Economy: "There has been a continuous erosion of middle class wealth over the last few decades. The gap between the middle class and the millionaires has grown by leaps and bounds as tax cuts go to the wealthiest while middle class wages stagnate."
  • Protecting Veterans and Federal Workers: "Federal Workers are the backbone of Utah's economy, and our veterans risked their lives to protect everything that we hold dear. Congress must listen to the their needs and do what is necessary to protect and thank them for their service."
  • Government Accountability: "This is no longer the era of Speaker Tip O'Neill and President Ronald Reagan working together for the best interests of Americans. Approval ratings of Congress are at an all-time low, and it is time for steps to be taken to show every American that Congress works for them, not for special interests."
  • Seniors: "Our Greatest Generation made a great country for us, and they deserve to have programs that they rely on protected."
