Campaign themes


Spitzer's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt:"The less regulation and taxes we have, the better private business will be. Business should succeed or fail based on the business model, financial model and the ability to succeed in an open marketplace."


  • Excerpt:"At a minimum the state should stop all inducements to come here illegally. Elimination of sanctuary cities, bilingual education and in-state tuition for illegal immigrants would be a good start. Even these common sense measures have not been passed despite 101 Republicans being in the Texas House last session. I would support these measures."


  • Excerpt:"I am against abortion, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research. I support and will defend traditional East Texas values."

Government Size

  • Excerpt:"Any increase in government transfers our money and our freedom to Austin. I believe in a smaller, more efficient, and more open form of government."
