Larson's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "With our uniquely American political system, which combines the practical genius of free enterprise capitalism with the compassionate ideals of a progressive style of populism, the Affordable Care Act may be the closest we will ever come to the dream of affordable universal health care in America."
- Education Funding
- Excerpt: "We need to decide what education our children need, and then we need to pay for it."
- Excerpt: "We have gone too far in paring down government programs. We have gone beyond cutting waste—we are cutting programs that ought not to be cut. At the same time, we have reduced taxes below reasonable levels without any real need to do so. Our tax policy appears to be driven by politics and special interests, and not by the needs of the people."
- Same-Sex Unions
- Excerpt: "I propose that we address this problem in a rational way before it gets into our courts, rather than waiting until a crisis arises and calm-thinking becomes impossible."
- Excerpt: "My vision is that we could work together to reduce the number of abortions in America to an absolute minimum without women having to give up any of the progress they have made in their reproductive rights. I believe that we can accomplish that through a number of practical means, starting with each of us having a greater understanding for each other’s views."
