Campaign themes

Barto's website lists the following issues:

  • Building a strong economy
Excerpt: "Low tax environments facilitate a healthy economy. Businesses are attracted to them and families keep and invest more of their hard-earned money. As a result, revenues increase and government is able to fulfill its core obligations to the public."
  • Education excellence
Excerpt: "The dynamic and competitive workplace our children face tomorrow demands bold education reforms now. The status quo is no longer acceptable because the future won’t wait."
  • Protecting life
Excerpt: "An outspoken advocate for the right to life, Nancy is committed to protecting the most vulnerable at every stage of life."
  • Protecting marriage
Excerpt: "Government promotion of unions other than the traditional definition of marriage undermines the unique roles of men and women within the family."
  • Securing our borders
Excerpt: "The Federal government has failed us by not securing our borders and addressing both the causes of illegal immigration and its effects upon our state. Nancy believes our government has a moral obligation to the citizens of Arizona to solve this problem. "
  • Transforming healthcare in Arizona
Excerpt: "Healthcare ownership for all Arizonans is possible through important insurance tax and regulation reform & true cost transparency."
  • Protecting your 2nd Amendment rights
Excerpt: "Nancy believes it is your Constitutional right to keep and bear arms."[4]
