Willis's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Frank will provide a unique experience to Raleigh. He understands our number one priority must be jobs. He also understands the economy. Frank has studied the economy in his career for over 42 years. He knows what it takes to create jobs. The legislature has done a phenomenal job over the past 2 years, and Frank wants to help build upon that foundation."
- Excerpt: "We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. North Carolina already started the tough process of reigning in the out-of-control spending. Thanks to the Tax Reform Act of 2014, our great state lowered both the corporate and personal income tax rates. This allows citizens to keep more of their hard earned money, and allows businesses the ability to reinvest the capital back into their business creating jobs. Because of legislation like the Tax Reform Act of 2014, North Carolina is finally able to attract businesses to relocate here. Frank wants to continue removing wasteful spending and lower our taxes."
- Excerpt: "Frank is Pro-Life. If elected, Frank will continue to fight for Pro-Life principles alongside the Republican party platform."
- Excerpt: "Frank supports the sale, purchase, and “lawful carry” of firearms by law-abiding citizens. As gun owner and instructor, he will continue to fight for legislation that protects, not inhibits the rights of gun owners. Frank will fight to protect our gun rights."
