Initially, Turiano indicated he would run for governor, but in January 2012 he switched to the race for secretary of state. He says he made the change "because running for secretary of state will be a little less hectic and will need less funds to be competitive against my secretary of state opponents than my governor opponents."

- Term limits law
Turiano said he wants to use the office to challenge the 1990's court ruling that exempts federal offices from the state's term limits law to federal offices- specifically, he wants to use the office "to deny senior U.S. Sen. Max Baucus ballot access in 2014."
Turiano currently resides in Helena, Montana.
