Ballweg's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "Far too often leaders in Austin fail too see past the next election, but Cole will seek to make and attract the smart investments that will set Texas up for a brighter future."
- Excerpt: "We have seen the impact of larger class sizes and discontinued programs. Parents are angry, and Cole will fight to put Texas schools back on the right path by restoring needed funding, ensuring our schools are safe, promoting policies that teach to every child’s unique ability rather than a test, and finding ways to attract and retain the most talented teachers."
- Excerpt: "Cole supports efforts to require greater disclosure of votes and financial ties to industry, end the practice of lawmakers lobbying right after they leave office, and strip state pensions from felons and “double-dippers.” In addition, he will fight for the interests and rights of the people of this area no matter which party sponsors a bill. Party lines should never draw the whole picture."
- Excerpt: "Texas has the highest number of uninsured kids in the nation, but we can cut that number in half by making sure every child eligible to enroll in a program or insurance policy does so. We can help people take responsibility for their own healthcare by making it easier to sign up for coverage, not harder. We can make sure our tax dollars stay in Texas by joining the 3-year Medicaid expansion program, which is 100% federally funded."
