Campaign themes


Peschke’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Jobs

Excerpt: "As a small businessman, Al understands the challenges involved with running a business and making payroll. If elected to the House of Delegates Al would bring this experience with him and work to lower the tax burden on Virginia businesses and eliminate the bureaucratic red tape that slows job creation. Al knows the best way to create jobs is to reduce government spending and provide incentives to businesses to create long-term jobs in order to put Virginians back to work and get government out of the way of job creators."

  • Economy

Excerpt: "Al wants to strengthen our economy and attract new businesses, entrepreneurs and startups to Virginia. He knows that it needs to be easier and more affordable for businesses to retain and hire new employees. That’s why he will fight to keep taxes low and reduce regulations that stand in the way of job creation. Al will work to cut the waste and bring more stability and certainty to our economy."

  • Govt. Accountability

Excerpt: "Al will lead the fight in Richmond to make government more transparent and accountable. He will take advantage of new technologies to stay connected to the public and keep them informed of all legislative actions. Al strongly believes that taxpayers deserve to have all the information on how their money is being spent."

Incumbent Roz Tyler (D) faced a rematch against Peschke, but Peschke only won 34 percent of the vote in their 2011 match-up. Although President Barack Obama (D) won 62 percent of the vote in this district in 2012, Governor Bob McDonnell (R) nearly won a bare majority of the vote in 2009 in this rural district, and depending on voter turnout, Peschke had the potential to make this race more competitive than the 2011 cycle. Although some observers pointed to this race as one where Republicans might win an additional seat, a Republican victory remained unlikely.[5][6]
