Campaign themes


Thompson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Create Jobs
Excerpt: "With our national economy struggling, the stakes in the upcoming elections are high. In 2008, America elected a President with no experience in business and no ability to lead us out of this crisis."
  • Stop Illegal Immigration
Excerpt: "Like so many households across Texas, State government had to tighten its belt and cut spending in order to balance the budget. More budget shortfalls are right around the corner. We simply cannot afford to pay welfare benefits or in-state college tuition for illegal immigrants anymore."
  • Balanced Budgets & Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "With our economy still unstable, it’s imperative that those we elect to office approach future government budgets from the standpoint of “no new taxes” and “no more debt.”"
  • Pro-Gun and Pro-Life
Excerpt: "Ed is 100% pro-gun and 100% pro-life."
