Campaign themes


Wilson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Evangelical Christian

  • Excerpt:"I am first a Christian and second a pastor of the Christian faith. All Christians are called to share the good news, and there is no better news than that of Jesus Christ, we are to preach Gods Word and to live by example."

The Sanctity of Human Life

  • Excerpt:"Human life begins at conception, a miracle of God, and is to be celebrated and protected. We must not misunderstand that this is first and always a biblical issue."

2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt:"I support the right to bear arms as well as conceal and carry for all law abiding citizens who wish to protect themselves and those they love."


  • Excerpt:"The Bible teaches that marriage is to be a permanent relationship of one man and one woman freely and totally committed to each other as companions for life. One man + one woman = one flesh."

Limited Government

  • Excerpt:"The declaration of Independence spoke of unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We should not misunderstand that government is not responsible to provide life, liberty, and happiness; it is to promote these ideals and keep us safe."
