Please note that Mrs. Carter was opposed to "amending the United States Constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman" (Question #9), was opposed to "adding “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” or “gender expression” to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination law" (Question #12) and was in support of a discriminatory "Religious Freedom" law by supporting "protecting healthcare professionals from being required to provide services that violate their moral or religious beliefs" thus allowing medical staff/institutions/pharmacists to refuse treatment and services to LGBT persons.

  Survey Questions & Candidates' Positions/Comments:

 
Question 1: Allowing parents to use tax credits, vouchers, or education savings accounts to enable children to attend any public, private or home school.
Candidates' Position/Comment: --- I absolutely support educational choice. Any form of education that accepts tax payer dollars must be held to the same standard as public schools, in terms of accountability and transparency. I want to protect the taxpayers' investment. I am against a system where money goes to a non-profit organization that takes money for overhead expenses. I want all of the money spent for education.
