|U.S. House, Florida, District 26|
|Birthday||September 28, 1960|
Peixoto's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "The possibility of terrorist attacks against our civilian population, our embassies and representations throughout the world as well as against our armed forces will always be constant. I will do as much as possible so that our Congress does not let lack the money necessary to always have the best training possible for our armed forces, our internal security services and intelligence services."
- Excerpt: "Our freedom and sovereignty would not be possible without a major contribution of our Veterans, but our nation is indebted to them and their families, because when they voluntarily signed a contract with any of our armed forces, they were given guarantees that they and their families would always be supported by us for their basic needs like education, work, housing, health ... but today we can see Veterans living in very poor situation, sometimes under bridges and overpasses."
- Excerpt: "We must first fight the huge fraud that exists against our system Medicare and Medicaid. As a congressman I will seek the best ways to combat and punish fraudsters. Also I will try to find a way to make the health insurance can be cheaper."
- Foreign Policy
- Excerpt: "As we are the largest Democratic Nation in the world we have to maintain our assistance to our allies and also to other nations that need our support, but as a Congressman I will not support any military sanction against anyone until all the dialog options are extinct. "
- Excerpt: "If the President of our Nation can only serve for eight years as a Congressman I will try to pass legislation that would limit both the Congress and the Senate to be the same. In the case of the Senate (12 years) and Congress (8 years)."
