Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Campfield's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Obamacare

  • Excerpt: "Senator Campfield has fought for your right to maintain your own Healthcare Freedom, and fought against Obamacare every step of the way. He sponsored the Healthcare Freedom Act here in Tennessee to protect your right to make your own healthcare decisions. Deciding to choose the "best" way to implement it is neither an option, nor a solution. Implementing this, under any name, would be disastrous for Tennessee, our budget, our taxpayers, and our healthcare patients."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "No one has worked harder to lower taxes and and here in Tenessee [sic] we are the #2 lowest taxed state in the country. That has created a business friendly environment, and we've seen billions of dollars come to Tennessee from other states over few years. His efforts have benefitted [sic] us by letting us keep more of what we earn, and letting us feed our families for less. Not only do we benefit from his efforts and insight, but our children do too."

Civil Liberties

  • Excerpt: "Senator Campfield has fought for your civil liberties, including your rights to privacy and due process. He has brought legislation to fight the NDAA's "Indefinite Detention", has reduced the ability of government to store automated license plate scan information, limited the ability of localities to implement more red light cameras, and has restricted warrantless domestic spying, and the use of domestic drones on Tennesseans."

Gun Rights

  • Excerpt: "Senator Campfield is one of Tennessee's staunchest supporters of our right to bear arms and the 2nd Amendment."

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt: "Senator Campfield opposes giving illegal immigrants a free ride. He supports enforcing the law, and opposes making Tennesseans foot the bill for the activity of criminals. This includes steadfast opposition to giving them benefits like in-state tuition to college, benefits which would otherwise come at the cost of taxpayers' wallets, and the cost of education opportunities for Tennessee's children."

NSA surveillance

In January 2014, Campfield and State Rep. Andy Holt introduced legislation pushing back against the National Security Agency and the federal government’s warrantless surveillance programs. The bills would ban state officials from providing material support to the NSA’s code-breaking facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.[2]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Tennessee scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
