Horton listed five issues on his campaign webesite:
- Healthcare: Excerpt: "As a proponent of limiting the reach of faceless bureaucracies into Americans’ pockets, repealing Obamacare will be one of Greg’s first steps in office. Pursued in its place will be a system in which state and local governments are provided with more control over the implementation of health-care policy."
- Economy: "We must inject a heavy dose of fiscal sanity into Washington by prioritizing above all else the need to rein in our debt and deficit while working towards a balanced budget amendment to solve this issue once and for all."
- Education: "A third-generation educator, Greg understands the need for quality educational opportunities for all and will fight to bolster and protect public schools. This need for a quality education for every student, however, means that more school choices are required in order for parents to remove their kids from failing schools and ineffective educators."
- National Security: "For the U.S. to retain its prestige and freedom of movement, Greg will work to lessen the proposed onerous cuts to the military budget while cutting down on redundant agencies and ineffective programs."
- Social Issues: "A Constitutional conservative and family values candidate, Greg is staunchly pro 2nd Amendment rights, pro-life, and supportive of the traditional definition of marriage between a man and a woman."
