Walker's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Jobs and Economic Growth
- Excerpt: "Economic growth is a must for South Carolina, in particular in our county and district. We must continue to make South Carolina a more business friendly state by ending excessive regulation, lowering taxes, and developing strategies to help attract more businesses to the region and state."
- Excerpt: "Tax reform should be a major focus of state legislators, with the goal of creating a fairer and lower tax burden on South Carolina citizens. Lower taxes can be accomplished by state legislators focusing on using our tax dollars wisely and increasing efficiencies in government agencies."
- Excerpt: "Educating South Carolina children should be a concern of all citizens. Without great teachers and school leaders the future of South Carolina's next generation can't continue to be bright. To reward and attract these critical human resources, we need to empower our local school boards to manage funds efficiently. Focus should remain on the child and the State of South Carolina needs to own the issues education faces and reduce federal control."
- Excerpt: "Without good roads business expansion in South Carolina will continue to hit bump and pot holes. We must maintain the roads we have and efficiently plan new road infrastructure. In planning new roads we need to insure we build them to last and in the correct locations. Building and repairing roads correctly the first time will reduce maintenance costs in the future."
