Campaign themes

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

  • Excerpt:"First and foremost – The Constitution of the United States and Michigan should be followed at all times when serving the people as all elected officials swear to defend and uphold it when they take office."
  • Excerpt:"Limited Government – rights are granted to the government by the people, the Government does not grant the people rights."
  • Excerpt:"Lower taxes – end government waste and keep the money in the hands of those who have earned it. The government shouldn’t raise taxes when it comes up with a new wasteful program, it should do what the American people do – work within their budget."
  • Excerpt:"Necessary transparency – we were promised more transparency by Obama. Instead, we’re still seeing backdoor deals with major pieces of legislation. If elected, I will post my vote on each piece of legislation and why I voted the way I did."
  • Excerpt:"Earmarks and pork in Bills need to end – a Bill should be very specific and concise to the content of the Bill."


After withdrawing from the race for U.S. Senate, Dewey endorsed Republican candidate Scott Boman.[2]
