According to the Federal Election Commission website, neither Biggs nor a Reform Party candidate in the 3rd District had filed a campaign finance report as of June 30, 2012. Harper reported $235,788 cash on hand.
Biggs told the League of Women Voters that she would reduce the national debt by assessing government spending and suggesting cuts where necessary. She said she would vote to repeal President George W. Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy.
Biggs said the country could become more energy independent by increasing the production of domestic oil and natural gas while exploring other clean energy options.
She has also called for a reduction in foreign spending and reducing the number of military bases abroad.
This is Biggs' first campaign for elected office.
