Campaign themes


On his 2012 campaign site, Maienschein outlines his campaign themes:

  • "Special interests control our legislature — demanding larger and larger portions of our shrinking revenues — and must be reined in. I will fight to end pension abuses and to put the interests of taxpayers and our state above those of special interests. Together we can work to reduce anti-business legislation to create more jobs, protect our education system and improve our neighborhoods. I’d be honored to have your vote. "



  • In March, Republican candidates Steiner and Maienshien participated in a "Four Question Forum" for 760 KFMB. Audio of the forum can be found here.
