Campbell's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Fiscal Responsibility and Limited Government
- Excerpt: "As a conservative, I support marketplace solutions, not government mandates, and I will balance the budget with spending cuts, NOT accounting gimmicks or tax hikes. I believe we can shore up our finances and provide higher quality services by eliminating duplicity and inefficiency throughout bloated state agencies, reforming education, and ending handouts to illegal aliens."
- Excerpt: "I oppose Obamacare and will make every effort to create a firewall against the unconstitutional encroachment on our great state, whether from the HHS, Justice Department, or the EPA."
Protecting Life and Promoting Family Values
- Excerpt: "I am 100% pro-life and believe one of the greatest privileges I will have as a State Senator will be to fight for the rights of the unborn and protect innocent life."
Growing the Economy
- Excerpt: "Uncertainty created by constantly changing government mandates hinders our state’s economic growth. I will work to decrease taxation, litigation, and regulation so that businesses can start hiring again. I believe that in order to maintain a strong business environment, we must protect businesses from frivolous lawsuits and return to a predictable regulatory climate."
