Campaign themes


Anderson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Private industry is far more efficient and effective in using financial resources than federal and state government. I believe all government would become more efficient and cost-effective, if they had less resources."


  • Excerpt: "I do not support any tax increase. And beyond that, government should be out of our pockets and away from our families and businesses."

Fiscal Policy

  • Excerpt: "Our government needs a spending cap and a debt reduction plan. Plus, I support individuals and families spending their own money in a capital and free-market enterprise system."

Businesses and Jobs

  • Excerpt: "I support a comprehensive restructuring of taxes and regulations to ensure Minnesota's competitive business environment."


  • Excerpt: "Core curriculum with an emphasis on math, science, reading, writing and American History should be a priority in every setting. Rural school funding needs to be equalized to that of metro school funding."
