Butterfield's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "I have spent many hours listening to concerns of citizens, business owners, and law enforcement on the issue of immigration and illegal immigration."
- Excerpt: "The cost of health care is taking a larger and larger percentage of family income, business revenues, and the state budget."
- Excerpt: "I support Governor Herbert’s vision for energy development in Utah, “Utah can lead our nation in the development of both traditional and renewable energy resources. We should do this through a broad portfolio, such as coal, oil, and natural gas; as well as wind, solar, nuclear, and clean coal."
- Limited Government
- Excerpt: "As you know, the federal government has grown too large, is too deep in debt, spends too much of your money, and is too involved in our lives. I will fight for limited government and states’ rights."
- Excerpt: "The key to our prosperity is educating our children and ensuring they are prepared to meet the challenges of the future. We need to pass more decision making power to parents, teachers, and local school boards. I believe in local control and my record shows it."
