Campaign themes


Grantham's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Fixing the economy – Creating Jobs
Excerpt: "The United States is facing an unprecedented economic crisis. Fixing our economy is going to require a drastic change from the current mindset that believes “government knows best.” Several steps need to be taken to start to put our economy back on the right path."
  • Lowering Taxes
Excerpt: "Bottom line – if you want to stimulate the economy, create jobs and allow true economic growth then you must let the people keep more of their hard earned money. By lowering taxes on individuals and businesses we will encourage additional spending and investment which has been and always will be the driving force behind true economic growth."
  • Reducing Federal Spending
Excerpt: "As a member of congress I would vote no on raising the debt ceiling. We cannot allow politicians and bureaucrats to have the opportunity to spend and continue to print even more money. Our government is addicted to spending and we must take drastic steps to both stop increased spending but also cut current levels of spending."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Medical decisions belong in the hands of patients and doctors – not the government."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "First and foremost we must secure our borders. We owe it to our citizens to utilize EVERY means necessary to secure our border including utilization of the National Guard, which I will continue to be a part of while serving this district."
