Campaign themes

According to Murray's website, his campaign themes included:

  • Economy: "The road to job creation and economic recovery runs through the private sector, not the federal government."
  • Energy: "Expanding on and offshore exploration will immediately set us on the road to energy independence and will also create thousands of badly needed jobs right here in America."
  • Taxes: "The bottom line is that our tax code is in bad need of reform. Our current system is cumbersome, overly complicated, deters savings and investment and leaves revenue on the table."[2]
