♦The Death Penalty in WV: One of the biggest issues facing West Virginians today is whether or not we should reinstate the death penalty in our beloved state. There are too many innocent people sitting in our prisons for me in good conscience to say that this would be a good option for our state.
♦ Womens rights: I support a woman's right to choose only in the instance that the mother's life is in immediate danger. An unborn child has to right for a chance at life, a chance to reach his or her full potential.
♦ Energy: West Virginian's should not have to choose between putting food on their tables and heating their homes. As governor, I will hold the electric companies and the Public Service Commission accountable for their actions and demand lower prices for the state.
♦ Teachers: I vow to protect the educators in this great state. The men and women educating our future should not have to worry whether their retirement funds will still be there when the time comes for them to use it.
