McCoy's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Concealed Carry in Illinois
- Excerpt: "Illinois is now the last state when it comes to concealed carry. Every one of the other 49 states have some type of concealed carry laws that allow their citizens to protect themselves and their families."
- Balanced Budget
- Excerpt: "In reality, the Illinois Constitution says you can't plan on spending more than you guess you'll have available for the year. Or, in short, just plug in some numbers and call it balanced"
- Business & Jobs
- Excerpt: "I've been a small business owner for nearly two decades now. It's one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. I've created new products and services, created dozens of jobs, and pumped a lot of tax revenue into the local and state economy. And for that, I would be lucky to have earned $2.00 per hour I put into my business over the years."
- Excerpt: "This nation is one nation under God. We recognize God in our Pledge of Allegiance, in our founding documents, and on our money -- "In God We Trust.""
- Pro-Life vs. Pro-choice
- Excerpt: "I'm PRO-LIFE, period!"
- Term Limits
- Excerpt: "The easy answer is term limits. Term Limits were important enough to assign to the President of the United States, yet just about every other elected office unlimited."
