Issues

Campaign Themes

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

Pro-Life

  • Excerpt:"I am pro-life unconditionally. My core belief is that society exists for the sole purpose of protecting the unprotected and any law that legitimizes the killing of a person harms, yes the person killed, but the entire society."

Pro-Gun Rights

  • Excerpt:"Gun ownership is a right guaranteed by our Constitution, and I am a big fan of our Constitution."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Public policy should support parental choice. Consequently, base state aid for each pupil should follow the child, regardless of the school chosen by the parents as best for the child."
