Wade's website highlighted the following issues:
Jobs and economic prosperity
- Excerpt: "In talking to people across Guilford County, I am convinced that the most pressing issue facing the State Legislature is the creation of jobs and economic prosperity in North Carolina. I am committed to reducing the tax and regulatory burden that stifles the private sector and places on business extra burdens which are costly and counterproductive."
Size and scope of government
- Excerpt: "I am committed to reducing the size and scope of government. I believe that government is a threat to personal freedom and individual liberty. Therefore, I will attempt to reduce the power and influence of politicians and bureaucrats in order to maximize the freedom of the people of North Carolina."
Taxes and regulations
- Excerpt: "I am committed to reducing the tax and regulatory burden that the state of North Carolina imposes on businesses and individuals. Government can harm business enterprise when it takes their capital in the form of taxes or takes their time and opportunity in the form of regulations. As State Senator, I will look for ways to free up the private sector."
- Excerpt: "I will work to get money out of the hands of entrenched bureaucrats and into the classroom, where those tax dollars can have a positive impact on student achievement. I support expanding charter schools. I support school choice and systemic school reform."
- Excerpt: "On May 8, 2012, North Carolina voters have the opportunity, thanks to conservative Republican leadership in the NC Legislature, to define marriage once and for all as between one man and one woman. I am committed to supporting this amendment."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
In 2013, the North Carolina General Assembly was in session from January 9 to July 26. In 2014, the North Carolina General Assembly will be in session from May 14 through a date to be determined by the legislature.
