Ing's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Education and Opportunity: Collaboration, Charter Schools, & Reform of the DOE
- Excerpt: "Public education is a vital investment for Hawaii’s future, and must remain a priority in our legislature. Our goal should be to provide every child, irrespective of socio-economic or geographical background, with the best education we can."
- Success in a Globalized Economy: Revisiting our Tax Code, Protecting Working Families, & Supporting Local Entrepreneurs
- Excerpt: "Globalization has evolved in a big way and technology will continue advancing rapidly; Hawaii must not fall behind. I will support policy and programs that encourage innovation in technology and business, especially for local entrepreneurs with vision for our future. I am pro-labor, pro-small business, and pro-tax reevaluation."
- Affordable Housing: Responsible Development, Infrastructure, & Support for Families
- Excerpt: "We need to ensure that while some growth may be inevitable, it is done responsibly and at a sustainable pace. We need to think beyond quick, short-term dollars and recognize the long-term effects of every project–whether it be a big box mall complex or public housing. Spiking property taxes followed by hard-working families losing their homes can be prevented if we plan ahead."
- Land, Water, and Energy: Watershed allocation, responsible adoption of renewable practices, and the environment.
- Excerpt: "I prioritize preserving our islands’ limited resources for use by future generations by encouraging renewable energy practices. This will start by transitioning Hawai‘i from having been the most oil-dependent state in the nation, towards becoming a world-wide leader in sustainable and renewable energy practices."
- Fair and Responsive Government: Money in Politics, Responsiveness, & Clean Elections
- Excerpt: "I support a comprehensive public funding option for Hawaii elections, similar to the proven-successful Arizona model, to give voters an option to elect candidates who are absolutely free from outside influence. I further vow to protect Hawaii law that prevents 'pay-to-play' preference in government contracts given to companies that contribute to certain campaigns."
Campaign spending allegations
The Hawaii Republican Party filed a complaint against Ing in October 2012, arguing that he exceeded his spending limitations during the August primary campaign. Ing joined a public matching funds program that legally limits his total campaign spending to $16,199 for the primary election and the same amount for the general election. Republicans charge that he must have exceeded that limit. they also contend that he did not file the necessary receipts and accepted donations larger than the $2,000 limit. Ing explained the campaign contribution limit by noting that the donation was paired with a loan from the same person, the total of which exceeded $2,000 but did not violate the campaign finance laws. Ing also noted that one expense that should have been on the previous report was properly filed for the upcoming report.
Ing won election in the 2012 election for Hawaii House of Representatives District 11. Ing defeated Netra Halperin, Colin Hanlon and Joseph Bertram III in the August 11 Democratic primary and defeated incumbent George Fontaine (R) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
