Campaign themes

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

Life and Marriage

  • Excerpt:"I believe life begins at conception and ends at natural death. I believe in traditional marriage between one man and one woman."


  • Excerpt:" We must stand strong and fight for them or we will continue to lose our liberties."

Economic Growth

  • Excerpt:"By eliminating uncertainty and providing a positive business climate, we will encourage new businesses to locate in Iowa and established businesses to remain in Iowa, thus providing needed jobs for hard working Iowans and career opportunities for our young people."

Lower Taxes

  • Excerpt:"It has been shown that states that reduce taxes and spending along with decreasing regulatory policies experience robust economic growth during strong economic times and are more resilient to adverse economic trends during weak economic times."

Quality Education

  • Excerpt:"Iowa’s children deserve a premiere education. Iowa’s current public educational system is broken, as evidenced by Iowa’s declining test scores when compared with other states."
