Freitas tends to support a libertarian conservative approach to economic issues. In his 2018 Senate race, Freitas stated: "People should be free to make important economic decisions for themselves free from intrusive and over bearing government. This means supporting low taxes, opposing onerous regulations, protecting private property rights and at all times fighting cronyism, which seeks to make business beholden to politicians and bureaucrats rather than their customers."
