On his campaign website, DePasquale listed four major themes of his campaign:
- Finding savings - "Given the incredible budgetary strain facing Pennsylvanians in recent years, the office of Auditor General is even more critical. I will run audits that will identify any wasteful and inefficient spending that can be eliminated, freeing up money for critical programs."
- Improving job creation - "The most important issue for Pennsylvania is job creation. I will consistently audit all economic development programs in order to identify those that are succeeding and those that are not so that we can either revise or eliminate them."
- Protecting the environment - "On my first day in office as your Auditor General, I will order an immediate performance audit of the Department of Environmental Protection to make sure our constitutional right to pure water has not been compromised by natural gas drilling."
- Funding education, healthcare, and public safety - "While we need to eliminate wasteful spending, we also need to make sure that critical programs have the funding that they need. The enormous cuts last year to education and health care programs are already taking a heavy toll on Pennsylvanians, and now eliminating hundreds of police officers is on the table. I will use the office to not only identify savings but to promote how these savings can be used."
Depasquale won re-election to the 95th District Seat in 2010. He had no primary opposition and was unchallenged in the general election which took place on November 2, 2010.
