Issues

Campaign themes

Blair's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Life

  • Excerpt:"I believe the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. I will work tirelessly to protect life from conception until natural death."

Budget/Economy

  • Excerpt:"I believe in making a budget and sticking to it. I also believe that legislators should not be allowed to change accounting rules in an attempt to deceive the public into thinking that they are finally serious about spending and our unsustainable debt."

Civil Rights

  • Excerpt:"The proper role of government is to defend the life, liberty and property of the people. I believe that all persons have civil rights that should be protected by the rule of law, and not via regulation or judicial activism."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Our school districts must be able to recruit the “best of the best” when it comes to teachers and when those teachers are found, must have the ability to retain them without regard to bargaining agreements. I am strongly against illegal aliens receiving preferential treatment or funding for school."
