Thorne Town Hall in Bentonville

Ms. Thorne, you’ve talked a lot about your conservative values, but not a lot about your liberal ones. What policy stances do you have that make you a Democrat? 

Also, Ms. Thorne, if you were elected to the Democratic Minority, would you vote for pro-abortion, anti-gun Senator Robert Powell—should he be re-elected to the Senate—as Minority Leader?

I’m pro-education reform that pays teachers and puts money into education not taking it out. I also support a living wage. Just downtown, the Waltons make millions per hour, while their employees are forced into government assistance. We talk about getting people of assistance, I agree. Let’s pay people enough to live and then they won’t need the handout. I’m against revenge porn, which the Republican Party can’t seem to decide where they land. 

I think calling someone proabortion is somewhat misleading. I’m going to vote for the person who will expand access for women to have alternatives. I didn’t see the Republicans doing that. That’s the main message we need to see: the standard idea of prevent from Republicans isn’t working. Instead let’s expand the choices. Also, calling the current senators anti gun is also misleading. Wanting to ensure background checks are performed isn’t outlandish. It takes a few minutes to run and ensures the current laws are enforced. I’ll support that legislation all day. First one who does that has my vote. But I’d rather vote for him for Majority Leader if you really want my opinion.

Ms. Thorne, in the Minority Leader’s re-election bid, he pledged to ban prayer in schools and said, quote, “Yes to women seeking an abortion because it is nobody’s business what a woman does with her body!”, end quote.  He also voted against the CCRA, citing the Second Amendment as a “states rights” issue.

Considering your position you just made clear, is it correct to say that Powell will not have your support should he be in the position to seek the Minority Leader slot—yes or no?

Reciprocity is a states rights issue. I've heard what he said and I'm not going to let what he said be twisted. He's free to disagree with me on abortion; I understand I'm out of the box for the party. As far as prayer in school goes I think what we have now works. Students are free to pray on their own or in groups. I'm not buying the Project Fear rhetoric coming out of the Republican Party that Democrats are against Christians. That's just not true. But religious liberty is liberty for all religions. So if students are allowed to pray, so should Muslim students, Buddhist students, etc. Republicans are very covertly wanting Evangelical prayer from teachers, it's what the religious right have always wanted. I think matters of faith should be left up to parents and pastors. Let teachers teach their curriculum and pastors and parents do their diligence to raise their children up in whatever religion, or lack of one, they desire. 

I'll vote for him for leadership because what we agree far outweighs what we disagree on. I don't trust the Republicans to get done what they promise to get done

Ms. Thorne, 

Would you have voted for the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act as it was introduced, without your hypothetical amendment that would pay for contraceptives with taxpayers’ money?

No, because I want to see alternatives. If the GOP are serious about reducing abortions they need to sign on and make Prevention more easily acceptable. That’s not asking for a lot-It’s bare minimum. I remember hearing Conservatives talking about compromise. By all means would love to see it
