LaFontain's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Jobs & The Economy
- Excerpt: "Michigan has dramatically improved our tax and regulatory environment, and today, our unemployment rate is at 8.3%, the lowest rate since July 2008. This is real progress, however there is still more work to be done."
Taxes & Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "I believe that you know how to spend your hard earned dollars much better than the government, and will work hard to reduce your tax burden, including speeding up the rollback of Michigan’s income tax rate."
- Excerpt: "Every child in Michigan should be given an opportunity to succeed. That is why I voted in favor of legislation that empowers parents to make decisions on behalf of their children."
- Excerpt: "I am 100% Pro-Life and I do not support abortion under any circumstances. I am proud to be the ONLY candidate endorsed by Michigan Right to Life."
- Excerpt: "I do not support Obamacare, and have opposed its implementation in Michigan. Hardworking taxpayers across Michigan have faced increasing health insurance premiums, and the Obamacare plan does nothing to address these problems – in fact premiums are rising."
