Campaign themes

Sanborn's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]


Excerpt: "I understand that helping to get government out of the way so we can create jobs is the most important issue today."

The Deficit

Excerpt: "Today, our government spends too much, taxes too much, and over-regulates to the point where it is inhibiting economic expansion. As your Senator, I will bring a Common Sense approach to making our government run more efficiently and work to expand our economic base."


Excerpt: "As taxpayers, you have the right to full disclosure on who the State pays and how much as well as the right to review every contract into which our State enters."


Excerpt: "We need to create reform that allows for buying across state lines and allows companies and communities to create their own buying groups."


Excerpt: "I am committed to helping provide the best opportunities to the students of New Hampshire. It starts with parents having a voice, choices, and controls over their children’s education, supported by local control."


Excerpt: "Our protection of the environment should not come from new or increased taxes but from common sense approaches to shared, responsible use."
