Hancock's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"Government must live within its means. Much like our families cannot spend money that we do not have, Government must be held to the same standard."
Jobs and Economy
- Excerpt:"The best way to stimulate the economy is not government intervention; it is through cutting taxes so businesses can grow and hire new employees and through eliminating unnecessary regulations and mandates."
- Excerpt:"The ultimate control of a patient’s care should be made by the patient and the doctor. Do we need some reform in health care, absolutely, but those reforms must always preserve the doctor/patient relationship."
Life and Marriage
- Excerpt:"I believe that all human life is sacred from conception to natural death and must be cherished and protected. I also believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. I believe both of these values contribute to a better and more civil society."
- Excerpt:"We should return control of the local school districts to the parents, teachers and local school boards. I believe the community knows how to best manage the education of their children, not a statewide bureaucracy."

- Environment, Energy and Natural Resources

Taxpayers League of Minnesota

The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."
