Campaign themes


Emery's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt:"My statewide goal is learned children, not a healthy bureaucracy or comfortable institution. I promise to work for exceptionalism. That is my goal, and I am committed to the battle."

Government & Business

  • Excerpt:"Ed believes that government is frequently out of touch with the conservative principles of Missouri. He knows that our communities will grow and flourish when the farmer and small business person are free to operate without unreasonable restrictions."

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt:"Ed Emery will serve you by standing for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” voting by principle, rather than circumstance. He will work with others who are like-minded to restore government that facilitates rather than opposes individual character, initiative, and innovation."

Jobs & Prosperity

  • Excerpt:"Legislation to eliminate government-mandated union membership so Missouri can compete with neighboring right-to-work states"

Sanctity of Life

  • Excerpt:"Sanctity of life is not just opposition to abortion and euthanasia: It is a measure of the value of a human life. Nothing is more sacred or worthy of protection than life from conception to the grave."
