Ballinger's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Bob is a strong pro-life, pro-family candidate. He has worked with state leaders to ensure that the sanctity of life is respected, protected, and upheld."
- Excerpt: "The people of Arkansas are resourceful and hardworking, and possess a creative and entrepreneurial spirit. With the natural advantages of our great state, we have all the resources to lead the nation in job creation."
- Excerpt: "Having taught in public schools, no one knows better than Bob that opportunities for a quality education are crucial if our children and, in return, our state, is to have a successful future, and if our republic will be preserved."
- Excerpt: "We've watched in disbelief as Washington politicians have driven the Federal debt to historic levels. Compared to Washington politicians, Arkansas has demonstrated some restraint in government spending, but the fact remains we can do more."
- Excerpt: "Bob understands that the best stewards of the land are farmers and ranchers who depend on it for their livelihood -- in some cases, for generations. These are the people who understand what it means to protect the land's viability and who understand its importance to our Arkansas heritage and our economic stability and strength."
- State Independence
- Excerpt: "Our great state is under attack by a liberal, over-reaching federal administration in Washington D.C. like never before. An assault on our way of life in Arkansas is in full force, with a federal government which thinks they can run Arkansas better than the people of Arkansas."
- Right to Bear Arms
- Excerpt: "Bob is committed to support our unfettered 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. He firmly believes that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right guaranteed to the people by the U.S. Constitution."
- Excerpt: "One of the most basic services our state government provides is good roads. Bob knows that we must find solutions to our transportation challenges."
- True Conservatism
- Excerpt: "Too often, government gets carried away with its desire to do everything for everyone. Year in and year out there are some in Little Rock who try their best to make Arkansas look like California, New York, or Washington D.C."
