Campaign Themes

2013

Taylor's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Committed to Freedom

"As Chairman of Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, he fought against dangerous national security leaks in the Obama Administration."

  • School Safety

"Our state must lead by creating easily understood, minimum standards for safety at every school, with clear and rehearsed lockdown plans, clear communication, and effective partnerships between school staff and first responders."

  • Smaller Government

"Raised by a single mother, working on a farm and paying taxes at age 11, and being blessed with an excellent mentor, all contributed to Scott’s understanding of conservative principals. Scott understands how taking more money from struggling families hurts their quality of life."
