 +
 +
*'''Jobs and the Economy
 +
"He strongly believes in Virginia’s right-to-work laws and voted to make them part of our state constitution because he knows they contribute to job creation in Virginia."
 +
 +
*'''Protecting the Second Amendment
 +
"Delegate Gilbert does not believe that law-abiding citizens should have to get the permission of their government to carry a concealed firearm.  He believes that the only outcome achieved by more gun laws and restrictions, including so-called “gun-free zones”, is to disarm good, law-abiding people while ensuring they are at the mercy of armed predators who will never follow the law."
 +
 +
*'''Traditional Faith and Family Values
 +
"He was a co-sponsor of the “Marriage Amendment” which enshrined marriage into Virginia’s constitution as being between one man and one woman.  He successfully sponsored a new law to protect faith-based adoption agencies from being forced, by the government, to place children with same sex couples."
 +
 +
*'''Fighting Obamacare
 +
"Todd has co-sponsored legislation to exempt Virginians from the provisions of Obamacare and this past session was one of only a handful of representatives to vote against laying the groundwork for the expensive expansion of Medicaid under the mandates of Obamacare."
 +
 +
*'''Public Safety
 +
"Todd has sponsored and supported countless new laws aimed at protecting our children from sexual predators, including mandatory life sentences for those convicted of raping a child."
