Bosworth lists her ten point pledge on her campaign website. Here's an overview of her ten points.
- "Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a patient-centric, market based healthcare system that we can afford."
- "Stop out of control spending: cut, cap, and balance the federal budget."
- "Fight the intrusiveness of the federal government in all aspects of our lives."
- "Eliminate our current tax system and replace it with a FairTax."
- "Secure the Border. No Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants."
- "Protect and defend all Life and traditional marriage."
- "Fulfill our Constitutional responsibility to defend America."
- "Eliminate unnecessary and overly burdensome federal regulations to boost our economy and make America more competitive."
- "Protect our Constitutional right to bear arms."
- "Enact term limit legislation to go along with my personal pledge to serve only two terms."
Bosworth came under fire after a raffle to raise money for military families to take a fishing trip in Alaska. The raffle was run through Bosworth's non-profit, Preventive Health Strategies. PHS was raffling off 80 acres of farm land in South Dakota. However, the raffle never took place and two people that purchased tickets for $1,000 each never saw their money. In February 2013, PHS sent the raffle ticket buyers a letter explaining the Defense Department changed the rules and they could not use the money as planned. They offered a refund. One man, Nate Fluit, did not ask for a refund because he thought the money would still help troops. The raffle deadline was July 15, 2013, but the raffle did not sell the 500 tickets they aimed to. The raffle never took place and Fluit called for his refund. Fluit was told he would receive his refund in the mail, but the check never came. The raffle is still being advertised by Bosworth on her Meaningful Medicine website, but the partner in the raffle, F.I.R.E. Missions, said they have cut ties with Bosworth.
Bosworth's campaign manager, Nate Johnson, released a statement in November 2013. He said, "The issues related to Preventive Health Strategies are issues for the non-profit, and not the Bosworth for Senate campaign."
