Wheeler's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

  • Economy
  • Excerpt: "It is truly disappointing that Illinois is ranked 48th among all of the states in job creation. This has a directly negative effect on our families and neighbors."
  • Business Environment
  • Excerpt: "The leadership in Springfield looks at the Illinois business community as if it is some kind of golden goose with infinite golden eggs. Instead, businesses are leaving Illinois in droves. We need new leadership to turn that around."
  • Budget/State Pension Costs
  • Excerpt: "There is no way that Illinois can continue to spend more than it takes in while allowing massive unfunded pension liabilities to remain growing unchecked."
  • Accountability & Integrity
  • Cooperation with Municipalities and School Districts
  • Fiscal Responsibility
