Peterson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

Grow Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We need to foster innovation, creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit that make Minnesota a great place to start a business"

Limit Government Spending

  • Excerpt: "It is important to live within our means. Just like you and I, government needs balanced budgets and to control spending. We need to take a hard look at reforms that streamline government services through technology and reduce redundancy."

Education Focused on Student Achievement

  • Excerpt: "I believe there are bi-partisan reforms that can help our educational system be even better. By providing choices to our parents/students and applying delivery models to reflect individualized learning concepts, student achievement will rise. If we shift our focus to early childhood education for at risk students, our student achievement gap will close."


  • Excerpt: "It is important to care for the needs of those who can't care for themselves with dignity."
