Issues

Campaign themes

Bower's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs and Sensible Government

  • Excerpt:"I will work to foster job creation by not increasing taxes and burdensome regulations, oppose legalistic obstruction of business and industry, and help to make this a state that can proudly say, 'We're open for business.'"

Election Integrity

  • Excerpt:"Minnesota leads the nation in voter fraud convictions. Voter ID will restore voter confidence in our elections, and voter participation. People who face difficulties getting along in society due to the lack of identification will be provided a state-issued photo ID at no charge."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt:"The Second Amendment protects every American's right to keep and bear arms. I will work to protect Minnesotans' rights and responsibilities in matters of self-defense and recreational pursuits."

Religious Freedom

  • Excerpt:"The right to freedom of religion is so central to American democracy that it was enshrined in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I will work to restore and protect this freedom from government interference."

Food Freedom

  • Excerpt:"I will work to defend the rights of sustainable family farms and artisan food producers to make their products available to consumers in a manner that protects, preserves and enhances the environment and its natural resources, products that can be sold directly to consumers without a license or permit."
