Peterson's campaign website listed the following themes for the 2014 race:
PROTECTING THE GOOD LIFE
The Attorney General is the lead law-enforcement officer for the state of Nebraska. One of the most important responsibilities for the Attorney General is to provide leadership and support for all County Attorneys and law enforcement agencies in the state. I have spoken with several County Attorney’s across the state and they confirm that in order to most effectively fight criminals they need the support of the Attorney General’s office. I will make this my highest priority as Nebraska’s Attorney General because it truly does affect the good life for all communities. Cracking down on all types of criminal activity will send a message to those criminals that Nebraska will never surrender any community to lawlessness.
PROTECTING NEBRASKANS FROM FEDERAL OVERREACH
Over the last several years we have seen the federal government under President Obama impose more and more control over both individuals and state rights. The United States Constitution limits federal authority. Nebraskan’s simply cannot back down to power plays by this current federal administration. Government works only when it operates within the constitutional boundaries. I strongly support government at the most local level. I will not allow the federal government to intimidate Nebraska individuals or businesses by overplaying its federal authority. Our founding fathers understood that our country is strongest when our states are strong.
PROTECTING THE NEBRASKA CONSUMERS
There have been snake oil salesman in Nebraska about as long as there have been snakes. Fortunately, in Nebraska the Attorney General’s office has a dedicated department to protect Nebraskans from consumer fraud. Motivated by greed and acting with deceit, corporations and individuals pray upon the most vulnerable Nebraskans. I intend to be very aggressive in going after these crooks. I want to send a very strong message that if you mess with Nebraskan’s through consumer fraud you will pay a very high price.
Fortunately, in Nebraska the Attorney’s General’s office has a department dedicated to protect Nebraskans from consumer fraud and I want to use my 28 years of legal experience to lead this unit and fight for you.
