Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Walker's campaign website describes the following issue positions:[2]

  • Agriculture, Economic Growth and the Global Economy
Excerpt: "With the recently enacted U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement, the door is wide open to increase our exports and especially our agricultural exports to that country. With Steve's knowledge of political affairs in Korea, he is the right person at the right time to help Park County and Wyoming walk through that door."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Without a world class education system, we cannot have a world class economy or a world class military. Without a strong education foundation, we will no longer have the world's largest and most vibrant economy or the world's most powerful military."
  • Energy Production, Jobs, and the Future
Excerpt: "We need an energy strategy that includes every aspect of energy production, efficient use, and conservation. ...We must be able to develop all of our natural resources, including the traditional sources of energy like oil, natural gas, and coal. We must also strive to be at the forefront of new energy technologies like wind, solar, geothermal and improved nuclear power generation."
  • Values
Excerpts: "Integrity." "Hard Work." "Perseverance."
  • Veteran Transition and Active Duty
Excerpt: "If elected, I will introduce legislation calling for a one-stop-shop for veterans returning to Wyoming to help them transition as smoothly as possible from the military back to civilian life."
