Campaign themes


Ratcliffe's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Limited Government
Excerpt: " John is a limited government conservative with a proven record of balancing budgets and not raising taxes."
  • Cut Spending and Balance the Budget
Excerpt: "Reckless government spending endangers our country’s financial stability while threatening the prosperity of future generations. With record deficits and $17 trillion of national debt, Congress still offers million dollar solutions to trillion dollar problems."
  • Obamacare
Excerpt: "From the second President Obama forced through a 2,300 page law that no one read, Obamacare has proved to be government at its worst – intrusive, expensive and ineffective."
  • Border Security and Immigration
Excerpt: "As U.S. Attorney, John arrested over 300 illegal immigrants on a single day. As a former terrorism prosecutor, he knows the threats an unsecured border can bring to our national security."
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "The proud holder of a Texas Concealed Handgun License, John has spent much of his career defending the Constitution under the Second Amendment."
