McElfatrick's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"It is not the duty of government to create jobs. It is the rightful role of government to stay out of the way and let the free market system do that."
- Excerpt:"The process shouldn’t be complicated. Government needs to step back from heavy-handed taxation on small and large business and let incentive and ingenuity take over. Profit is re-invested, business grows, more jobs are created and everyone benefits."
- Excerpt:"Our representative form of government depends on educated citizens. They must be prepared to understand the issues, be capable of researching candidates’ backgrounds and positions, and vote intelligently. A healthy economy depends on each successive generation to provide the manpower and skills to support existing industry and adapt to a changing world."
- Excerpt:"Government should not destroy human dignity by perpetuating a lifestyle of unnecessary dependency. It is apparent that the system needs to be rebuilt, encouraging and supporting personal responsibility and a sense of self-worth while still addressing legitimate needs. "
- Excerpt:"Believing that human life is precious and that it begins at fertilization, she is an active worker in the defense of life at all stages and in all conditions."

Taxpayers League of Minnesota
The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."
