Westcott's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Taxes & Spending
- Excerpt: "We must continue to improve our economy to create new jobs and continue fighting tax increases – and lowering taxes whenever possible. I’ll go to Austin and I’ll fight wasteful spending. I’ll also support requiring a super majority to raise taxes."
- Excerpt: "I believe that a strong public education system is essential to our economic health. We have good schools but we can make them better. I believe that parents should have greater choice in how their children are educated and they should be given a greater say in how our education dollars are spent."
- Excerpt: "I strongly support term limits and will fight to put limits in our Texas Constitution for State Officials and Members of the State Legislature."
Protecting the Second Amendment
- Excerpt: "I’m a proud member of the NRA and the Texas State Rifle Association. I will work to fight any government overreach that threatens the basic Second Amendment rights of law abiding Texans."
Protecting Our Children
- Excerpt: "As Texas Chairman of Protect.org, I’ve worked to successfully give law enforcement new tools to fight internet sexual predators. Now, Texas parents know that we have an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force up and running in Dallas. As your State Representative, I’ll continue my work to fight those who prey on innocent children."
