Campaign themes


Ford's website highlighted the following campaign themes:


  • "Another of our priorities must be to restore our State's economy and put Nevadans back to work. With our staggering unemployment rate, it is clear that we must explore new and innovative ways to induce our current businesses to hire and to encourage additional businesses to choose Nevada as their home so that Nevadans can get back to work. I support incentives to accomplish both of these goals. I will bring small businesses to the table to make sure they are part of the decisions affecting them."
  • "I will work to enact legislation that will enable businesses currently engaged in energy development in our State do so better and more efficiently. I will also work to attract new businesses interested in our natural resources – businesses that hire Nevadans and invest in our State. We can benefit from the energy-development industry, but we must first position ourselves for this benefit. I will work to do that."
