Elizabeth Emken was a 2012 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from California. She lost in the general election.[1]


Campaign themes


Emken's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Government Spending and Budget
Excerpt: "I am committed to reducing the size and cost of government, reducing the publicly held debt and lowering taxes."
  • Economic Growth
Excerpt: "Small and large American businesses will lead us out of the economic downturn, not more government spending. We must provide our business community the tools needed to grow the economy."
  • Accountability in Washington
Excerpt: "Our elected representatives should have the courage and discipline to properly manage the Nation’s finances without the force of law. Sadly, they don’t. Because of the severity of the crisis, I support a balanced budget amendment movement. The momentum behind this movement will serve to let Congress know the people are serious about debt reduction."
  • 2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "I support the 2nd Amendment and oppose any attempts to weaken it."
  • Definition of Marriage / Family Issues
Excerpt: "I agree with the majority of Californians on this issue: I support traditional marriage."
