Issues

Campaign themes

2010

Varner's website highlighted the following campaign issues:[2]

  • Create Local Jobs
Excerpt: "Small businesses and their success must become our focus in order to create more skilled job opportunities."
  • A Pro-Life, Pro-Family Democrat
Excerpt: "I am committed to the causes dear to many of you: protection of the unborn, preservation of traditional marriage, the safeguarding of religious liberty, and conservation of the Second Amendment. "
  • A New Vision for Alabama
Excerpt: "Our responsibility to future generations has been sacrificed and we all sense a disconnection between what we believe and the policies that rule our lives... I feel within my heart a burning desire to make that difference, to be the voice of reason, to fight for the ideals that made this country great."
  • Revitalize Family Farms
Excerpt: "If we lose our ability to feed ourselves, we will not only become held hostage by global food prices, but we also become entangled in foreign government interests and agendas."
  • Protecting the Family
Excerpt: "A stable, healthy family represents the best way to grow a country and maintain a prosperous economy."
  • Rebuild Wealth of Working People
Excerpt: "I believe we can create an environment where the entrepreneurial spirit of the poor, working, and middle classes can thrive. I believe we must provide everyone an opportunity to prosper, not just those “too big to fail.”"
  • Demand World Class Schools
Excerpt: "Our children are our future; we must invest in their foundation and build a legacy for our grandchildren. This is our duty as parents and grandparents."
