Pelton's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Federal Attacks On Our God-Given Rights
- Excerpt: "Our rights are under constant assault with the NSA scandal, the IRS scandal, forcing business owners to violate their religious beliefs, and the constant attacks on our right to keep and bear arms. As your State Representative, I will assert our rights under the 10th Amendment."
- Excerpt: "I will fight for control of our schools to be put back into the hands of our parents, teachers and administrators because that is where it belongs."
Growth Of Government
- Excerpt: "When government grows, our liberty shrinks! I will fight the growth of government at every turn."
Water And Property Rights
- Excerpt: "Texas is desperate for water. I will work to find creative solutions to this critical problem. Water rights are sacred. I will NEVER allow meters to be placed on private wells. I will stand firm!"
