On the Issues

Where does Steve stand on the issues?


I am unequivocally pro-life, and have been endorsed for this race by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life. I have been an active member of MCCL since well before Roe v Wade and have an impeccable record as a pro-life leader in the legislature. I believe that life should be respected and protected from conception to natural death.

2nd Amendment.

Steve Wenzel is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and believes in gun-owner rights. He believes in the right of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, their family and their property from dangerous criminals who threaten their lives and their property.  During his House tenure, Rep. Wenzel achieved a 100% voting record in support of gun owner rights.

Economic Growth.

Government isn’t only too expensive; it is too big and too powerful. Excessive taxes and regulations harm economic growth, and massive government spending has sparked runaway price increases that harm all of us. It’s time to cut taxes and cut back government.


Everybody claims to oppose crime, but today’s liberals seem to love criminals. Twin Cities liberals and Governor Walz have embraced criminals, derided our overworked law enforcement, and sparked a crime wave that is sweeping the state. I passed legislation to increase sentences for violent crimes and will fight to restore peace to our state.


I know agriculture. I was Chairman of the Minnesota House Agriculture Committee for 16 years and was appointed in 2001 by President George W. Bush to be Minnesota Director of Rural Development in the United States Department of Agriculture. Bureaucrats in St Paul don’t know squat about how to run a farm or feedlot and should restrict themselves to helping and not hindering our rural economy.


Bureaucrats in St Paul and Washington DC are destroying our public education system. Instead of focusing on helping students learn how to read, write, and do arithmetic we now have radical leftists pushing Critical Race Theory, transgender ideology, and “equity” into our classrooms. I believe in local, parental control, educational choice, and empowering our best teachers to educate our kids.
