Miles' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- EDUCATION: "Full funding of our public schools, our community colleges and our universities. No excuses. Our students get the state funding they need. If we are going to hold our students to the highest standards, then we must not short-change them!"
- ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: "Making economic development a priority for Scott County, which means working with the public officials and business leaders who create new jobs, supporting our small business owners and speaking out for Scott County at the State Capitol."
- HEALTH CARE: "We must have a state health care system that never forgets our senior citizens. They were there for us, and we should be there for them. It is a moral imperative."
- LAW ENFORCEMENT: "Our fire, sheriff and police departments need more resources and better equipment. As an interstate county, we face extra challenges, our emergency officials need to be readily equipped to meet them."
- FAMILY FARMS: "Every family farmer must know that government will support them in every way possible. I will be a strong voice for our local poultry farmers who make up a large segment of our local economy."
- HONESTY AND INTEGRITY: "Scott County deserves a representative who will return your phone calls, listen to your ideas, stand by his word, and work day and night for Scott County."
On November 8, 2011, Miles won election to District 75 of the Mississippi House of Representatives. He ran unopposed in the August 2 primary and defeated Republican candidate Brenda Whatley-Kirby in the November 8 general election.
